SUPPORTING THE DIGITAL ENVIRONMENT: THE COPYRIGHT (AMENDMENT) BILL 2014
- A note from Indranee Rajah S.C., Senior Minister of State for Law

A 2013 survey showed that 74% of our youth aged 19-24 consume copyright infringing material. Parliament passed the Copyright (Amendment) Bill in July 2014. READ MORE

TRANSFORMING THE FAMILY JUSTICE SYSTEM: RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE COMMITTEE FOR FAMILY JUSTICE
- A note from Indranee Rajah S.C., Senior Minister of State for Law

As all family lawyers know, family cases are far less about legal issues than they are about emotional ones. Clients who are otherwise rational and logical can, in family disputes, take intransigent positions on matters which, viewed objectively, should never be brought to court but end up being litigated anyway due to the inability to separate the legal issues from the emotional ones.

From Legacy to Digital


Date           :  Thursday, 18 September 2014

Time         :  12.00 - 2.00pm

Venue       :  TBC

Speakers :  Mr Neil McInnes
                      Mr Bryan Tan

The Digital economy will not ignore the many brick and mortar companies we now have. This seminar discusses many of the challenges facing companies as they move from their existing platforms and IT processes to new technologies. It is intended to cover various issues ranging from interoperability of systems and applications, cloud, data protection and other regulatory concerns and renegotiation of existing contracts. Technology also raises specific issues relating to anti-bribery & competition law compliance. Technology companies typically have commission-based sales forces which increases the propensity to skirt anti-bribery rules – how do general counsels implement programs to keep up with the myriad of rules operating in a multi-jurisdiction setting? Our experiences in Singapore and in other parts of the world will be used in this interactive seminar by Bryan Tan and Neil McInnes.
