NUS Law Commencement 2018

Congratulations to NUS Law's Class of 2018 on the conferment of their degrees! This year’s Commencement Ceremony was made even more special as NUS presented an honorary doctorate, the University’s highest honour, to Justice Chao Hick Tin, Senior Judge of the Supreme Court of Singapore. Madam Halimah Yacob ’78, President of the Republic of Singapore and NUS Chancellor, conferred the Honorary Doctor of Laws on Justice Chao Hick Tin at the Main Ceremony of NUS Commencement 2018. About 360 graduates from the NUS Law were also conferred their degrees at the ceremony.

NUS President Professor Tan Eng Chye said, “We are proud to be celebrating the achievements of the NUS Class of 2018 on this day. The journey ahead for our graduates will be exciting - I have every confidence that they will excel in their chosen paths, overcome challenges that might come their way, and make a difference in society – as their predecessors have done. I would like to urge our graduates to never stop learning, and to assure them that NUS will be their anchor for lifelong learning, as they grow in their careers.”

As this year's graduates sit among renowned members of our alumni, it is a reminder of the paths that lay ahead of them, and the duties that they will undertake as they continue to be integral members of the law fraternity.

Chong Shi Cheng, valedictorian for the Class of 2018, thanked professors and loved ones. Addressing his classmates, Shi Cheng said, “When success is achieved, it is easy to get caught up in it. It is then that we must remember to be grateful and humble. Equally, when faced with setbacks, which would invariably happen many times in our lives, it is important to not allow them to defeat us, but rather, to learn from the experience, and to become a little wiser and a little more resilient. Thus, as we move from the shelter of school and into the phase of practice, I hope that we will always practise the attributes of humility, resilience, and willingness to learn.”

We wish the Class of 2018 every success in their future!
