Adjournment motion on feasibility of setting up a judicial service commission for judicial officers
27 Jul 2021 08:51pm
The Government is prepared to consider restructuring the Legal Service into separate judicial and legal branches and has set up a working group to study issues that may arise. Law Minister K Shanmugam said Singapore’s small pool of talent meant an integrated model had worked well for many years; it also gave young officers breadth of exposure and those taking leadership positions a broader perspective. However, he agreed the benefits of specialisation are likely to grow. He was replying to a motion moved by MP Murali Pillai in Parliament on Tuesday (Jul 27).
