SCCA Year-end Appreciation Dinner 2014 and Launch of SCCA In-house Learning Framework 2015 (3 Dec 2014, 7-10pm)

Dear SCCA Members,

2014 has been an eventful year for the Singapore Corporate Counsel Association (SCCA).

In June, we celebrated the success of the first In-house Counsel World Summit in Asia where we hosted more than 400 attendees from 22 countries and 120 organisations. We also launched various new initiatives to better value-add to our members, including enhancing Work Support, Peer Support and Career Support to help in-house counsel be better at what they do, so that the corporation, and ultimately the larger community benefits.

In addition, we will take the opportunity to launch SCCA’s new In-House Learning Framework. Developed with the input of the SCCA’s Education Subcommittee and Special Industry Interest Groups with the advice of its Education Advisory Panel, SCCA’s “Inhouse Learning Framework” is a holistic and extensive learning and development framework for all in-house counsel to equip them to add value to the business through ensuring up-to-date technical knowledge and skills, as well as management and leadership competencies.

I look forward to having you join me and my other General Committee members. For more details and to RSVP online, click HERE.

- 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.
