Adelaide Law School visits NUS

Twenty students from the Faculty of Law, University of Adelaide, led by Professor Melissa de Zwart and Associate Professor Christopher Symes, visited NUS Law on 28 September 2015 – the second stop on their Southeast Asian study trip.

Associate Professor David Tan, Vice Dean (Academic Affairs), together with Professor de Zwart, conducted a seminar on “The Future of Copyright Law” that covered controversial issues regarding copyright subsistence in compilation works, the right of public communication and fair dealing. A/P Tan commented that there is much for Australia and Singapore to learn from each other in the area of copyright law, and noted that a number of Australian cases have been referred to with approval by Singapore’s highest appellate court – the Court of Appeal.
