Our Graduate Law Students in the 2015-16 academic year.
Message from Dean Simon Chesterman
“By joining one of our Master of Laws programmes you will be part of a global conversation about the study and practice of law, taught by experts in the field and sitting beside future leaders of the profession.”As Asia’s global law school, NUS Law’s graduate programme is an integral part of that vision. Every year, we welcome lawyers from dozens of countries around the world to Singapore — one of the most dynamic and open economies in the world, and the gateway for many multinational corporations to Asia.
By joining one of our Master of Laws degree (LL.M.) programmes you will be part of a global conversation about the study and practice of law, taught by experts in the field and sitting beside future leaders of the profession.
NUS Law’s LL.M. offers an opportunity to upgrade qualifications, to develop new skills, and to form professional and personal connections that will last a lifetime. Specialisations offer a programme of study tailored to develop expertise in a particular area, whether it is Corporate and Financial Services, International Arbitration and Dispute Resolution, Intellectual Property and Technology, International and Comparative Law, Maritime Law, or Asian Legal Studies. Or you can design your own LL.M. programme, choosing from more than 100 courses offered by NUS faculty and visitors.
Students who want to combine their NUS degree with significant time in China should consider the LL.M. in International Business Law, in which you spend one semester in Singapore and a second semester Shanghai, offered in partnership with the East China University of Political Science and Law.
Time spent in graduate school should be about more than just study, however. We are fortunate that NUS Law enjoys a beautiful campus that is adjacent to Singapore’s World Heritage-listed Botanic Gardens. Many students also use their time in Singapore to explore the region. Whatever your reason for considering a graduate degree, I hope you will take the time to explore what NUS Law has to offer.
