Honorary Treasurer's Message

Samuel Widdowson

Dear fellow SCL(S) members

Welcome to the 65th edition of our SCL(S) newsletter!

As Treasurer of SCL(S), I would like to thank all our members for your support, contribution and attendance at our various events, which provides valuable revenue for the continued sustainability of the Society.

The Society is continuing to work hard in ensuring that its members are provided with knowledge sharing, education, study and research in the field of construction law in tandem with valuable networking benefits, such as the AGM & Annual Dinner, which will have just been held by the time this newsletter hits your respective desks!

As we continue into a busy and exciting period of the year for the Society, with our main Annual Conference coming up soon (which this year is being hosted as a hybrid event in collaboration with ISAF and will delve into matters interrelated to ‘Adjudication (Dispute Resolution) in the Age of Collaborative Contracting’ (Thursday, 21 September 2023, 8.45am – 5.00pm (GMT+8)), I would like to encourage those that haven’t yet, to register for the event to avoid any disappointment of missing out.

In my secondary role in the Society as the Chair of the Social Media Engagement Committee, I would like to thank those of you who are following our LinkedIn page. We regularly update the platform to promote and attract new members to join SCL(S). In addition, our posts and updates provide our SCL(S) members, LinkedIn followers and others from around the globe with details of our upcoming activities and events, including: Seminars, Webinars, Workshops, Conferences and Social Events.

On behalf of the SCL(S) Council, thank you for your continued support and we hope you enjoy this newsletter.

Adrian Tan

The news of Adrian Tan’s passing brought great sadness but along with it, a chance to reflect on the legacy that the great man left behind.  
Adrian is remembered for his sharp and witty mind. Although his contributions to the legal fraternity are widely recognised, his warm heart and humanitarian focused endeavours provided a voice on wider social issues to improve the lives of others.  
On behalf of the Council and Secretariat at the Society of Construction Law (Singapore), we express our deepest condolences to the family of Adrian Tan. We would also like to express our immense gratitude to Adrian for his contributions to the legal profession and the inspiration he has imparted onto so many of us.
Rest in peace.
Moon Kua
Chair – Society of Construction Law (Singapore)
