Law IV 2017: An Interview with the Production Heads

Stepping into the Auditorium at 6.30 pm on a Friday evening was like changing trains at City Hall — people were criss-crossing in various directions, either in deep conversation with fellow actors or engrossed in checking messages on their phones after finishing rehearsals for their specific parts. With less than a month to go to...

Atlas Coffeehouse Review

Atlas Coffeehouse Review When I first heard that Assembly Coffee closed earlier last year, I was upset as it was one of my favourite cafés. I miss it fondly for its unassuming and rustic atmosphere, its savoury coffee and famous waffles – I am sure many people can sympathise. Fortunately for everybody, the same folks...

[Dialawgues] Not Just A Coffee-Making Uncle

You’ve read some stories about the non-academic staff in law school – Remember Auntie Saddiah from the NUS Co-op @ BTC, who’s always game for a little chat with us students? Remember our former Summit chef Suresh Krishnan the ‘Briyani man’, and Auntie Tara who works relentlessly behind the scenes so our classrooms are always clean? As part of...
The 7 Best Instagram Spots At BTC

The 7 Best Instagram Spots At BTC

Many would contend that the pursuit of #instafame and #feedgoals is a highly noble one.

Four Species of Endangered Lawyers

Littered everywhere in the Singapore media is a doomsday prophecy for “young lawyers”. Even if they manage to beat the odds of getting a job amid the ‘glut’ of young lawyers, they are now told to hold off the (self-)congratulations as junior lawyers’ jobs are on the verge of being cannibalised by artificial intelligence. Last...

Law School Food Guide [Part 1]

Welcome to the Law School Food Guide! One of the first things freshmen and freshwomen notice about the Bukit Timah Campus, other than its heritage, is simply how detached it is from everything else.
