It takes the lions to slay the dragons of injustice. The lions of the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS) to fight the injustices faced by the needy and deserving. This is the driving force behind the birth of the CLAS Fellowship in 2015.

The CLAS Fellowship is where passion meets need. Our young lawyers defend vulnerable accused persons in one third of Singapore's pro bono criminal cases. Through passionate advocacy and dogged determination, the CLAS Fellowship restores life by securing just and fair outcomes for the needy, the youth, the mentally ill, the intellectually handicapped and the forgotten.

The CLAS Fellowship needs your help to persist in the good fight, particularly during these trying economic times caused by the COVID 19 pandemic. Ensure our lion pride remains steadfast and strong even in these most challenging of times. Your support will be instrumental in sustaining the CLAS Fellowship by enabling us to induct new lions into the fellowship. Your donation will go towards all expenses arising from the CLAS Fellowship, including their remuneration, professional training and related practice costs such as professional indemnity insurance.

Please read the Annual Report on our website to find out how 2589 CLAS applicants benefited from pro bono criminal legal aid last year!

About the Charity

The law is a mystery for many. And intimidating. Especially if you can't afford legal advice.

Our lawyers give generously and selflessly of their time and expertise for the needy in our community - to help those who can't help themselves. Our lawyers also do pro bono work for nonprofit organisations, helping them to help others.

We are a Singapore registered Charity (UEN: 201700430E) and Institution of a Public Character, established to support our lawyers in the noble cause of serving the vulnerable and the marginalised with access justice.
