The Ethics Assist Helpline

On 10 June 2024, the Law Society of Singapore launched “Ethics Assist”, a confidential helpline designed to facilitate a lawyer’s access to ethical guidance.

The creation of Ethics Assist is aligned with the recommendation of the Interim Report of the Ethics and Professional Standards Committee dated 15 December 2023,1https://www.judiciary.gov.sg/docs/default-source/news-docs/interim-report-of-the-ethics-and-professional-standards-committee-(final).pdf which recommended the establishment of a less formal mechanism for lawyers to receive guidance on ethical issues. The following infographic provides an overview of Ethics Assist and how it works:
