Supreme Court of Singapore
The Supreme Court of Singapore moved from the Old Supreme Court into its new premises in June 2005. The new 72,000 m² building was officially opened on January 7th, 2006. It accommodates 12 civil courts, eight criminal courts, three appellate courts and accompanying suites of ancillary facilities.
The Supreme Court is made up of the Court of Appeal and the High Court, and hears both civil and criminal matters. The Supreme Court Bench consists of the Chief Justice, the Judges of Appeal, Judges and the Judicial Commissioners of the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court Registry is headed by the Registrar who is assisted by the Deputy Registrar, Senior Assistant Registrars and Assistant Registrars. Justices' Law Clerks, who work directly under the charge of the Chief Justice, assist the Judges and Judicial Commissioners by carrying out research on the law, particularly for appeals before the Court of Appeal.
