About the Donor

The Subhas Anandan Legacy Fund was established through the generosity of the late Mr Anandan’s family, friends and supporters, in memory of the late Mr Subhas Anandan.

Subhas Anandan brought his keen intellect, sharp wit and generous heart to the practice of criminal law and was the champion of the underprivileged underdog. Subhas continues to be remembered as a pro bono hero, having promoted its services long before it was recognised as an essential part of legal practice.
