The law firm organised a Charity Shield rugby match between the law schools of the National University of Singapore and the Singapore Management University at Yio Chu Kang Stadium yesterday. Apart from contributing to the SPMF, they also raised $35,000 for the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme, which helps accused people who cannot afford their own lawyer.
