In Singapore, having the rule of law and advancing people’s access to justice are not just lofty ideals but the backbone of a functioning and a progressive society. At the Ministry of Law, not only do we contribute to developing the legal frameworks and policies that uphold our way of life, but also to providing community legal services that Singaporeans benefit from. The key policies we oversee include Singapore’s legal and intellectual property infrastructure, the civil and criminal justice systems as well as land resources.

Our officers are experts from different fields, and enjoy an excellent and challenging career in a fast-paced environment with plenty of opportunity to grow. If you share our vision of shaping the future of Singapore, you will definitely fit right in here at MinLaw.


The Community Legal Services Division (CLSD) drives and oversees the policy issues for MinLaw’s four operational divisions – Insolvency & Public Trustee’s Office (IPTO) which includes the Registry of Moneylenders and Pawnbrokers, Legal Aid Bureau (LAB), Community Mediation Unit (CMU), and the Anti-Money Laundering and Countering the Financing of Terrorism Division (ACD).

In the Regulatory and Administrative Policy Unit, you will review and develop policy and regulatory frameworks relating to individual and corporate insolvency, the public trustee, moneylending and pawnbroking.

You will be involved in the entire policy formulation process. This will include engaging relevant government agencies, stakeholders and industry players to conduct research and gather feedback/input. You will develop policy options to address various issues, and draft papers to put forward recommendations.

You will also assist in planning, overseeing, communicating and evaluating the implementation of policy initiatives. This may include work such as developing operating guidelines and procedures, developing computer systems, or providing secretariat support to committees. To this end, you will need to work not only with officers from IPTO, LAB and CMU, but also with persons outside the Ministry. You may
also occasionally be involved in projects outside of your fixed portfolio.

In the coming years, we expect to see reviews concerning the moneylending landscape, anti-money laundering/countering the financing of terrorism, and our bankruptcy regime.


Strong interest in public policy-making, along with strong analytical, writing, organisational and communication skills. You should also be meticulous and be able to work well both independently and in a team.
