Fountain Court Chambers, with the support of the Singapore Academy of Law, sponsors the annual Christopher Bathurst Prize.
The Christopher Bathurst Prize 2016, is named in honour of the late Christopher Bathurst QC (Viscount Bledisloe QC), who was a long-standing senior member, and integral part of Fountain Court Chambers. Christopher Bathurst had strong ties to Singapore and developed a substantial practice there, and therefore the prize is open to full-time students enrolled at the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law or at the Singapore Management University School of Law, and those qualified under the Legal Profession Act, aged 30 or younger, as of 1 January 2016.
The winner of the Christopher Bathurst Prize will be awarded to the contributor of the best written legal advice and win an all-expense-paid 2 week internship with Chambers in London. Here are the details how to enter. The deadline for submissions is 29 July 2016.
The Prize is supported by the Singapore Academy of Law which is a membership-based body whose work is to support the growth and development in Singapore of the legal industry. The work of the Academy is directed towards raising the standard and quality of legal practice and building a strong and dynamic legal community in Singapore.
