- You must be a Qualified Person (as defined in s2 of the Legal Profession Act), without a practicing certificate;
- Previously called to the Singapore Bar (you will need to submit the necessary documentation); and
- Able to commit to work for not less than 1/2 a day a week for at least 3 months during office hours.
