Matthew Chua Shi Jie
Practice Trainee (2023)
LL.B. (Hons), Singapore University of Social Sciences (2022)
Matthew Chua Shi Jie is an incoming Practice Trainee of Remy Choo Chambers LLC. As one of the firm’s founding members, Matthew was instrumental in helping to set up the firm in record time by drawing on his previous working experience as an administrative assistant and administrative executive in leading property management consultancy firms.
As a go-getter, Matthew actively sought out real-world working experience beyond what was required of him under the school’s legal clerkship programme, by working as a paralegal/legal executive at other law firms for a cumulative period of 2.5 years whilst undertaking his Bachelor of Laws degree. During this period, Matthew acquired in-depth knowledge in corporate secretarial filings, trademark registrations, due diligence searches and conveyancing completions under the tutelage of senior practitioners who found “[his] enthusiasm admirable”.
Matthew was the Head (Clinics) of the Executive Committee of the Pro Bono Student Group in school and assisted the Criminal Legal Aid Scheme (CLAS) Fellows under the Law Society’s CLAS during his legal clerkship programme.
