The programme included joint seminars with the Singapore International Arbitration Centre, the Singapore Society of Construction Law, visits to the Singapore Chamber of Maritime Arbitration, a legal seminar in Korea, receptions at embassies in both countries and meetings with the local Bar associations and local law firms. The Chairman also met with representatives from both countries’ Ministry of Justice, the Singaporean Attorney General and the Chief Judge of the Korean High Court.

The trip was supported by UK Trade and Investment, which provided £5,000 as well as providing partial financial support to a number of individual applicants. We raised sponsorship of around £5,000 from two SBAs and four sets of chambers.
