Stefanie Yuen Thio quoted in Today: “Bar exam cheats named: Legal fraternity say culprits must take responsibility for actions but deserve second chance”

On 28 April 2022, TSMP Law Corporation joint managing partner Stefanie Yuen Thio was quoted in a Today article on the cheats being named. 

She said that people may not know that the hearing on whether the law graduates should be admitted to the Bar has not yet taken place, and “given the amount of public umbrage that’s been expressed”, a continued non-disclosure of the trainees’ identities would just “add fuel to an increasing fire”.

She also said that the disclosure of the trainees’ names should not encourage people to form a lynch mob, whether against the lawyers themselves or the firms where they worked as trainee solicitors.

“Let’s let justice take its course and hear all the parties out when the adjourned hearing finally goes ahead,” she added.
