China Ready Programme

Growing bilateral trade between Singapore and China and the growing presence of Chinese companies have opened up new opportunities for Singapore law firms and lawyers. Launched by the Singapore Ministry of Law in partnership with HCE, the programme provides participants with a deeper understanding of the Chinese culture, business environment, legal system and laws, and training in Business Mandarin in the legal context.

The programme is specially developed to expand the pool of Singapore lawyers who can work with Chinese companies and law firms effectively to meet businesses’ needs.

The first run of the programme was concluded in 2020, for the forthcoming run, click here to download the brochure or sign up by clicking on the button below

Comments From Our Participants

“The trainer was very prepared and engaging. The use of actual documents to show use of specific technical phrases and terminology was very helpful. It’s good to know what to say when describing a legal concept to Chinese clients.”

“The programme provides a good overview of the Chinese legal system and law. I am now more aware of the legal and cultural background when discussing with my Chinese counterparts.”

Foong Yuen Ping, Allen & Gledhill LLP

“Good presentation and engagement. I have gained knowledge about Singapore-China bilateral relationship, Chinese civil code, Chinese contract law, administrative acts etc. The overview on data protection laws was also useful in advising clients on what to look out for when investing in China.”
