Feedback to MAS Consultation Papers on Outsourcing - Submissions by Bird & Bird and SCCA

On 30 September 2014, the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association organized a dialog session for financial institutions and vendor organizations to discuss and identify common key feedback points on MAS's proposals to raise the outsourcing risk management practice standards of financial institutions.
Following the dialog session which was led by ATMD Bird & Bird, this document was prepared to set out the feedback points which were raised and discussed at the session for MAS's informational and discussion purposes.
Although the proposed Guidelines and Notice on Outsourcing apply across all types of outsourcing and is not limited to IT outsourcing, this paper discusses MAS's proposals in the context of technology outsourcing, particularly in the context of shared services and cloud computing services, to illustrate some of the concerns of both financial institutions and their service providers.

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

The digital revolution has opened up opportunities but also poses challenges for creative industries. A 2012 survey ranked Singapore 12th out of 38 countries in terms of number of downloads of infringing content per internet user. 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.

Being Indranee Rajah
Date        :  Wednesday, 19 November 2014
Time       :  18.00 - 20.30pm
Venue     :  Rodyk & Davidson LLP, 80 Raffles Place, #33-00 UOB Plaza 1, Singapore, 048624

Synopsis:- 

For many, success as a lawyer means getting that corner office in a law firm at Raffles Place and the respect that comes with the territory. But some have been there, done that, and more. Ms Indranee Rajah became a partner at Drew & Napier LLC in 2001 and was appointed Senior Counsel in 2003. While holding that coveted corner office at Drew & Napier, she also contributed to public service as Member of Parliament for Tanjong Pagar GRC since 2001 and served as the Deputy Speaker of Parliament from 2006 to 2011. In 2013, she gave up her practice at Drew & Napier to become Senior Minister of State for Law and Education. Moving from legislature to the executive, she now guides policy that will shape the legal industry in years to come and educates a younger generation about proper grammar (“Excuse my bad, it’s a grammar twerk”, Today, 26 October 2013).
 
There is a wider legal environment and eco-system beyond practice at a law firm, and a career in law could easily lead to other just as meaningful paths. At this forum, we ask Ms Indranee Rajah, to speak to young professionals in their 20s and 30s seeking to define themselves and their legal careers. To share her experience both in practice, as well as a politician and a policy maker. To give us some anecdotes about what motivates her, how she found success and pointers that have served her well wherever she turned. In short, to tell us what it is like Being Indranee Rajah.

The event is jontly organised by the SCCA Peers Committee and SIAC.

Admission is Free for SCCA Members!
