What if I need Ethics Guidance?

For informal guidance on an ethical issue, simply contact the MACH Helpline at 6530 0213 and we will arrange for the appropriate Law Society Secretariat staff to provide assistance to you. Please note the following conditions of use for this service:

  • The Law Society Secretariat accepts no liability whatsoever arising from assistance given to callers or to any persons claiming through or under them.

  • Callers are obligated to independently verify statements of law, procedure or fact made to them by the Law Society Secretariat, before relying on them.

  • The service must not be used as a substitute for the callers' own thorough research and analysis or for the callers' own professional judgment.

  • The assistance given by the Law Society Secretariat is merely to help identify ethical issues and does not reflect the opinion of the Ethics Committee in the matter.

If you require formal written advice or guidance from the Ethics Committee on an ethical issue, send your query to the Representation and Law Reform Department at represent@lawsoc.org.sg. In this regard, please refer to the Council’s Practice Direction 2 of 2009 on Guidelines for Inquiries to Ethics Committee.
