This professional development certification programme is a collaboration between the Singapore Academy of Law, the Family Justice Courts and the Law Society of Singapore. It is the result of the efforts of Judges from the Family Justice Courts, members of the Family Bar, Mediators, Counsellors and Social Scientists, from Singapore and internationally, working together in the spirit of Therapeutic Justice, as part of the movement to reshape the Family Justice arena.
This programme was conceived to give members of the family bar an appreciation of the spirit and an ethos of Therapeutic Justice and in-depth view of what it means, practically, to be an advocate of Therapeutic Justice.
