My First Moot

My First Moot

Heart-racing, palms sweating, mind spinning – does this sound familiar to you? No, I’m not describing the average guy before he confesses to his crush, I’m just describing what the average person feels like before he enters the room for his first moot. Mooting can be an overwhelming yet enriching (or so they say) experience,...
Minutes with Mindy - Insights with Professor Chen-Wishart

Minutes with Mindy – Insights with Professor Chen-Wishart

We met Professor Chen-Wishart at the lobby of the Eu Tong Sen building. There, she is seated comfortably on one of the lounge chairs, with her backpack and laptop seated on either side of her. We say hello, she says hello – and is very nice (even though we’re kinda late) – and we start the interview....

CJC Just Punishment – Conversations on the Death Penalty

Singapore’s death penalty is shrouded in constant debate, both within and beyond Singapore’s borders. Its exercise and usage has often been privy to public speculation. Some decry the death penalty to be against human rights, or to be abolished altogether, saying that it is simply unnecessary. Others stand by it, describing it as a powerful deterrent  With...

Our (?) Top 3 Char Kway Teows

When asked about our favourite Singaporean dishes, many rush to mind. Although many dishes could be in the running for our fav, we dare say that the humble, but ~amazing~  char kway teow (“CKT”) is the quintessential Singaporean classic. Here, we have reviewed three of what are arguably the best CKTs in Singapore!

Getting Cozy with the 38th Law Club - Part 2

Getting Cozy with the 38th Law Club – Part 2

It seems like Hollywood’s game plan is to simply keep churning out sequels, in some thinly veiled attempt to get us cinemagoers to spend more money on their movie franchises. Of course, that never works since, as we all know, watching it online is a far better alternative. *Justified does not encourage piracy, watch it...
Welcome to Woonderland - Insights with Professor Walter Woon

Welcome to Woonderland – Insights with Professor Walter Woon

Professor Woon’s office is packed – full of books, trophies, pictures, shelves, and just about everything. He sits comfortably, in his office chair, framed by the row of books (some, his own), arranged neatly. Behind the area where he works there is an alcove – as all staff offices do – with windows looking out...

Getting Cozy with the 38th Law Club – Part 1

The NUS Students’ Law Club (affectionately known as the “Law Club”) is a constituent club of NUS Students’ Union and is made up of the law undergraduate, graduate and masters students in NUS. Or at least that is what the page on Justified says. But that was back in 2011, where at least for most...
The Coconut Club Review

The Coconut Club Review

It’s a club, alright. For a start, getting through the doors hinges on specific time slots for entry. Not everyone gets a seat at the coveted indoor tables. Less so if all parties aren’t present. To top it all off, they don’t even take reservations, which probably explains the line which often snakes down to...
