Corporate Social Responsibility
One Asia Lawyers plays an active part in local communities. It is our responsibility to contribute to the growth and development of each local community.
Supporting advancement of Japanese lawyers into Southeast Asia
With an increasing number of Japanese lawyers admitted each year, it is important to expand the fields and regions these lawyers can utilize their skills. We encourage and welcome young Japanese lawyers into all of our offices. It is how we help internationalizing the next generation of Japanese legal experts.
Supporting Japanese Lawyers obtain Singaporean Practice Licenses
Understanding the common law is important in Southeast Asia, where many states are former colonies of the UK. We recognize the advantage in understanding Singaporean Law as it represents a de-facto standard in the region. We support and assist lawyers, even those not working with One Asia, in attaining Singaporean qualifications through the Foreigner Practitioner Examination.
International Internship Program
We believe law students should have exposure not only to their own countries laws, but to foreign laws early in their legal career. For more details, click on our Internship Program.
Educating local lawyers
In the same way we support our Japanese lawyers to obtain foreign qualifications, we assist and provide the necessary means for our local lawyers to become experts in Japanese law.
Our contribution to society
We contribute to each local community by actively engaging in volunteer programs and donate to local organizations. Our Singapore Office is heavily involved in the Pro Bono Services Office of the Law Society of Singapore. In developing states, we actively engage in establishing the base for constitutional government. In Cambodia, Japan has been a key player in establishing their civil code. On Asia lawyers are involved in educational programs related to spreading an understanding of the civil codes in ASEAN region countries.
