NEW WEB SITES

mda.gov.sg   is the Web site of the new Media Development Authority, formed by the merger of the Singapore Broadcasting Authority (SBA), the Films and Publications Department (FPD) and the Singapore Film Commission (SFC).

LegalConnect.org.sg   is a cyber platform, set up by the Ministry of Law, to keep Singaopore's overseas lawyers informed of developments in the local legal scene, gather feedback on legal reform and developments in other countries and to assist the local legal fraternity to network with those working overseas.

LawTown.gov.sg  is a new one-stop portal set up by the Ministry of Law. It provides answers to frequently asked questions on legal matters by the man on the street such as whether you need to engage a lawyer to draft your will, can you still pay your traffic fine without going to court after the offer for composition has expired, or how to apply for custody of your children.

Casewatch.com.sg  is the Web site of a new online monitoring system launched by the Supreme Court on 28 Nov 2002. It allows subscribers to be automatically alerted via e-mail whenever there is any legal action involving a specified list of companies. The information is drawn directly from the databases of the Supreme Court.
