Happy International Women’s Day !

March 8th, 2021 Posted by Community Events, Insights No Comment yet

Today is International Women’s Day, a day where we celebrate the success of women in social, cultural, economical and political development.

Eden Law would like to take this opportunity to celebrate the successes of our clients, many of whom are women who are juggling children, work and their own struggles moving forward with their lives after challenging circumstances.

We would especially want to highlight our clients who are foreign wives. They face immigration, employment and accommodation challenges in Singapore but still press on for the sake of the children.

Women are all heroes in their own ways. May we continue to find strength within to excel in our lives. Happy International Women’s Day!

Trainer for Lawyers in Action!

July 14th, 2020 Posted by Community Events No Comment yet

Just two days after she joined us as Counsel, Lei Theng has stayed true to her word, and continued in the finest traditions of all educators.  On 2 July 2020, Lei Theng gave a Zoom Workshop for more than 380 members of the Bar and in-house counsel on Basic Principles of Legal Drafting.  District Judge Mr Joseph Yeo joined in after Lei Theng’s talk for a lively and engaging Q&A session.

One of the most respected and experienced educators in the legal industry, Lei Theng has always been generous in sharing her experience and knowledge with younger lawyers, not only at NUS Law, but also young lawyers seeking to practice, and already in practice.  Drawing on her years of experience as a practicing lawyer, clinical professor, and legal skills educator, Lei Theng critiqued actual examples drawn from practice, and provided an overview of principles to be followed in good legal writing.

In response to requests for suggestions on how to improve legal writing, Lei Theng has urged the Law Society to consider reviving the written advocacy tutorials that were run two years ago.  In the coming weeks, Lei Theng will be running further workshops on legal skills for various groups, and on law for social workers and members of the public.

Lei Theng’s passion for education extends beyond the law school, and she is thrilled to join Eden Law’s social mission of promoting legal awareness in the community. Eden Law believes in the importance of empowering the public with legal knowledge. Since 2014, Eden Law has conducted more than 150 free legal awareness talks for the public on legal issues such as estate planning, divorce and neighbour disputes.  Lawyers from Eden Law will be participating in the Law Awareness Weeks organised by the Law Society Pro Bono Services and the CDCs.

In line with social distancing measures, Eden Law has been hosting legal awareness webinars with our social partners. We welcome any social and community organisations to reach out to us for potential collaboration.

Eden Law Celebrates International Women’s Day

March 4th, 2020 Posted by Community Events No Comment yet

International Women’s Day is on March 8 every year. It aims to honour the contribution of women to society and to bring awareness to more equitable choices to women while eliminating discrimination and societal hurdles to women.

In the same spirit, Eden Law aspires to be the premier low bono legal firm in Singapore, providing competent, affordable and effective legal aid to the underserved and disadvantaged. Our social mission is achieved through:

  1. A sliding-scale fee model based on client’s disposable income
  2. Fixed Fee arrangements
  3. Competent, effective and efficient representation

Women in disadvantaged circumstances are a core focus of our outreach and legal aid efforts. To this end, we have initiated Project LEAF with the Law Society Pro Bono Services to provide legal aid to foreign spouses in matrimonial disputes.

Eden Law partners with AMKFSC on “Good-to-Go”!

January 15th, 2020 Posted by Community Events, In The News No Comment yet

Thinking about our mortality can be frightening, no matter one’s age or health condition. As we get older, the reality of our own mortality will often come into clearer focus too.

With an aim to dispelling myths and fears and to explore values and views toward end-of-life issues, AMKFSC launched a nation-wide public education campaign called “Good-To-Go” that covers Advance Care Planning  and end-of-life matters.

Eden Law is honoured to partner with AMKFSC on their “Good-to-Go” campaign. To this end, our Associate Director Low Seow Ling spoke on Lasting Powers of Attorney and Wills to an audience of medical professionals at Seng Kang Community Hospital on 9 January 2020.

We hope this will empower our audience to be better equipped to discuss end-of-life planning with their patients!
