For Singapore lawyers, we all have a common problem. The public thinks that it knows what we do, as lawyers.
The public gets its misconceptions from Hollywood movies, Korean dramas, and American paperbacks. From these unreliable sources, they form a completely inaccurate picture of what we do, and how we do it.
That’s why the Law Society constantly has to de-mystify the law and legal practice, so that the public is educated on what we actually do for them.
Over the years, we have engaged with the public more frequently, and we now even have an Instagram page.
And, this month, we present one of my favourite Law Gazette articles.
It’s titled, “So What Do You Do As A Lawyer?”
Law Gazette asked several lawyers this question. Their answers are enlightening. I am always impressed when I hear from our members. They are insightful, articulate and always entertaining.
Please read the article, and then I would like you to do something for me. Share the article on your social media, together with your own answer to the question, “So what do you do as a lawyer?” Post it on your LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, or even in your office. Let the public, and our clients, learn a little bit more about our world, the services we provide, and the way we contribute to society.
