BTC: Bites To Consider - Hwang's @ Summit

BTC: Bites To Consider – Hwang’s @ Summit

According to BTC folklore, the story goes that hugging a petite Chinese lady in a bright yellow polo and three-quarter pants at the Summit will get you a free kimbap. I refuse to confirm nor deny this but that small lady is the guardian of a stall that many (including myself) hold dear.

D&D 2017

D&D 2017

Every year, freshman get a chance to dress to the nines, indulge in fine dining, and pretend that they are sophisticated. Well not every year, but this was the first year back for Dinner and Dance after a strangely absent 2016 rendition cough salt cough, and the enthusiasm was shared by both the new kids...

Dentons Rodyk Moots 2017

Every year, first years spend weeks and weeks preparing to “please the court”. After the culmination of this preparation, five outstanding mooters are chosen to go before real judges and practitioners to test their mettle.

2017’s edition of the annual Advocacy Cup, sponsored once again by Drew & Napier, was the stuff out of thrillers.

And this year’s finalists duked it out like duelling captains from the days...

Gowling WLP IP Moot 2017

WongPartnership Arbitration Moot Finals 2017

With the dreaded Y1 LARC moots coming up in less than a month, I thought it would be a pretty good idea to watch the WongP International Commercial Arbitration Moot 2017 Finals, in order to get a rough idea of what I’ll be getting myself into. And I get to write an article, which is...

LawMed 2017: Netball

LawMed 2017: Netball

The strong team of 18 girls, after months of consistent training sessions each week with blood, sweat and tears were raring to go on the scheduled date for LawMed (24th of February) but were thwarted by heavy rain throughout the day. Having run afoul of the Weather gods and with no indoor court available, the...

LawMed 2017: Ultimate Frisbee

The popularity of Ultimate Frisbee continues to rise – a few years back, it was formally recognised as a potential Olympic sport. The rules of the game are simple: teams of seven (made up of both men and women, a truly egalitarian sport) try and pass the disc up the field. Running with the disc...
