Even lawyers need help--a new initiative was launched in early January to help lawyers keep in touch with developments. Singapore Law Watch is a free "one-stop" legal news service bringing timely notifications of changes to laws and related developments. It provides readers the most current information including the latest legislative changes, new Supreme Court judgments, current legal news in the media, as well as articles and commentaries on the impact of new developments.

Lawyers are busy creatures and like most other people suffer from information-overload. So the hope is that this service will allow them to get the developments that impact them.

What is also fascinating to me is that the service is RSS-enabled which makes it handy for the tech-enabled lawyers to get the information pushed to them. The site is available to all so you do not need to be a lawyer to access this--non-lawyers as well as non-Singapore lawyers are also targeted in this effort to provide up-to-date developments. Access to legal information is after all part of access to justice.

Declaration of interest: I sit on the advisory board for Singapore Law Watch.
