Six trainee lawyers who cheated in the bar exams in 2020, had their admission into the legal profession delayed.

Justice Choo Han Teck said in his grounds of decision yesterday (18 April), that he will not be naming the 6 of them in the hope that they will not be prejudiced in the long run.

He said that dishonesty is a big problem but it would also be harsh to end their professional career before it has even begun.

The six cheaters were among 26 trainee lawyers who had applied for admission to the bar last Wednesday.

Law graduates have to pass a set of exams called Part B to be admitted to the bar, in order to practise law in Singapore.

Also, the lawyer who wants to be admitted into the bar must not have any objection from the Attorney-General, Singapore Institute of Legal Education (SILE) and Law Society of Singapore.

The six trainees’ application was objected to by the Attorney-General, citing their lack of honesty and integrity for cheating.

The six of them have since passed their required exams after retaking it.
