Abstract

As part of its English colonial heritage, Singapore's is characteristically a common law legal system, following until recently many of its archaic customs and practices. One key difference with the English system, however is that unlike the latter - where barristers have rights of audience which solicitors typically do not - Singapore's legal profession is a fused one. Lawyers called to the Singapore bar are both advocates and solicitors who are entitled to advise their clients and plead their case directly in court.
