OVERVIEW

The SCCA Legal Eagle Challenge, Singapore’s first ever in-house counsel competition for law students, is back for its second-run in 2021! Following a highly successful inaugural competition that saw over 160 participants from 5 schools, participants will again assume the role of a General Counsel in a realistic simulation of the work done by in-house counsels every day.

This year, participants will be asked to provide advice on issues related to employees’ usage of social media and the implementation of a social media policy in a world where there is increasingly a less clear divide between work and the personal.

Past Participants' Experiences

"Illuminating experience"

"The competition gave me a glimpse into what being an in-house counsel entails. We applied theories learned in the classroom into more complex practical scenario and it also pushed us to demonstrate qualities beyond the typical legal skillsets."

"Enjoyed the event. Not only was I given the opportunity to be trained as a real in-house counsel but I was also provided an immersive platform to apply what I have learnt to a realistic case study."

"My experience was immensely rewarding, and I would recommend everyone to give the Legal Eagle Challenge a try!"
