On 31 May 2019, APCEL Post-doc Fellow,  Mandy FANG presented her research 'A Crisis or An Opportunity? The Trade War between the US and China in the Solar PV Sector' at the 8th Conference of the Postgraduate and Early Professionals/Academics Network of the Society of International Economic Law (PEPA/SIEL) 2019 at King's College London.

In January 2019, APCEL and Climate Law co-organized a workshop on the rules and modalities implementing the Paris Agreement on Climate Change (the Paris Rulebook). This culminated in a Special Issue on the Paris Rulebook published as Volume 9(1-2) of Climate Law.

Between 2nd and 14th December 2018, APCEL sent 4 students as part of the NUS student delegation to attend the COP24 held in Katowice, Poland as observers. This COP was regarded as crucial for setting in stone a rulebook to advance the implementation of the Paris Agreement. Carol Yuen (‘19), Eric Bea (‘19), Jamie Lee (‘20) and Sarah Lu (‘21) write about their experiences at COP24.Report
