NUS Law Commencement Ceremony 2013

The Commencement Ceremony 2013, which took place on 11 July, marks a new beginning for almost 400 graduates from NUS Law, as they embark on a journey to build their respective careers and future.

Packed with our graduates, their family members and friends, the University Cultural Centre was abuzz with excitement, as each went about snapping photos with schoolmates and lecturers, the lively banter, and the grabbing of graduation souvenirs. After years of studying together, it was obvious that their spirit of camaraderie and the friendships they have built here will continue beyond graduation.

Valedictorian for the class, Bryan Fang'13 says in his speech: "We all realise the importance of academic results and that each of us was, by virtue of being in the same cohort, in competition for the best of them. But, despite this backdrop, there was never once where I felt that, as a class, we had placed the matter of grades ahead of our peers. While I may not have had the opportunity to get to know all of you, I have always found those whom I have interacted with to be generous with their knowledge, enthusiasm in our discussions and, above all, respectful of the opinions of others. And so, to the Class of 2013, it has been a privilege, and a pleasure, to have learnt side by side with you and I hope this spirit of mutual respect and solidarity will follow us into practice."

We wish the Class of 2013 all the best in their future undertakings!
