Brief Biodata

Dr. Ho lectures and supervises on diverse aspects of international investment law. The principal areas of her research are the law of State responsibility, the law of treaties, and investment contracts. Dr. Ho is the first academic in the history of the Faculty to graduate with honours from l'Université de Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne, topping her class in several courses including Droit des Contrats, Droit de la Responsabilité Civile, and Droit des Sociétés. She is also the first Singaporean to be awarded a placement with the Conseil d'Etat in Paris, an honour normally reserved for foreign judges. Prior to academia, Dr. Ho specialised in investor-State disputes at Shearman & Sterling LLP. Fluent in French and Mandarin, she now divides her time between Singapore, London, Paris and Washington D.C.
