"An accessible justice system is a fundamental building block in inspiring public trust and confidence in the Singapore justice system" - The Honourable, The Chief Justice, Mr Sundaresh Menon
The Community Justice Centre (CJC) was launched in March 2013 by the Honourable the Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, to help unrepresented litigants who may be daunted by the prospect of handling a case on their own. CJC offers these litigants assistance with the courts processes and procedures, so that that they may better navigate the court system, thereby enhancing access to justice, irrespective of background or social status.CJC also assists litigants who face financial difficulties or underlying emotional or psychological distress. By working in partnership with social agencies, lawyers and volunteers, CJC provides a continuum of tiered programmes, catering to the individual needs of these litigants.
