Legal Aid Bureau
The Legal Aid Bureau ensures
equal access to justice to persons of limited means, by providing them
legal aid, including representing them in court. An applicant must
meet the means and merits tests to qualify for legal aid. The Bureau
only provides legal aid for civil matters which are handled by
in-house lawyers and assigned volunteer lawyers.
Persons seeking legal assistance in criminal cases may approach the Law Society of Singapore for its Criminal Legal Aid Scheme.
