Seven NUS Law graduates from the Class of 2021 have been appointed Justices’ Law Clerks (JLC) at the Singapore Supreme Court.
The JLC programme was first introduced in 1991 by former Chief Justice Yong Pung How. The two-year programme of the Singapore Legal Service gives top young law graduates the valuable opportunity to train under senior judges and gain valuable exposure to court perspectives. Selected law graduates will work with and train under the Chief Justice and other members of the Supreme Court Bench.
NUS Law graduates (clockwise from top left) Jerry Wang, Gwendolyn Oh, Wee Jong Xuan, Lai Weng Han, Jasmine Goh, Ryan Kwan and Ong Kye Jing have been appointed Justices’ Law Clerks.
Law graduates Mr Jerry Wang, Ms Gwendolyn Oh, Mr Wee Jong Xuan, Mr Lai Weng Han, Ms Jasmine Goh, Mr Ryan Kwan and Mr Ong Kye Jing will undertake legal research, draft bench memorandums and provide hearing-related assistance to Judges of the High Court and the Court of Appeal.
They kick started the programme on 1 Sep at the Attorney-General’s Chambers (AGC) and have all been posted to different divisions within the AGC as Deputy Public Prosecutors.
They will commence their clerkship with the Supreme Court judges at the beginning of next year.
