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.

Advocacy Cup 2017

Advocacy Cup 2017

2017’s edition of the annual Advocacy Cup, sponsored once again by Drew & Napier, was the stuff out of thrillers. It involved drugs, betrayal, two forms of piracy (criminal conspiracy and pirate piracy), luxurious sailboats and copious usage of the word ‘Sayang’. And this year’s finalists duked it out like duelling captains from the days...

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...

They say all good things must come to an end. It is on this note that the much awaited debate on Friday drew a proper closure to the LawMed Games.

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...

Romance, Murder, Ambition: A review of Law IV’s Judicial Review

As with every year, the graduating batch demonstrates their “free time” by showcasing a musical to the school. The batch of 2017, being the first batch to go through the mandatory Pro Bono scheme, decided to dedicate their play to the fund going towards Pro Bono projects by NUS.

LawMed 2017: Floorball (Women’s)

It was a scorching Saturday morning during recess week when the women’s floorball team gathered at Valhall to face off against their rivals from Medicine. Some dedicated members of the team had even come from an earlier Lawmed match, but still tirelessly warmed up before the floorball game.   Both sides were eager to prove...

LawMed 2017: Handball (Women’s)

The rays of the sun broke through the skies after what was a rainy morning (presumably, since the ground was moist to the touch and the seats had mini water puddles on them). Under the glare of the hot sun, the Women’s Handball match took place at the courts near university hall: 7 individuals from...

LawMed 2017: Soccer (Women’s)

Presenting to you… *drum roll please* your star players, history makers, game changers from the Faculty of Law! Okay, I kid, but we (or rather, our star player, Shannon) did make history by scoring our very first 2 goals since the beginning of time.     The first half proved to be teeth clenching as...
LawMed 2017: Handball (Men's)

LawMed 2017: Handball (Men’s)

“Eh, Law vs Medicine sia! But why only these two faculties ah like so elitist…” Shifting uncomfortably, I tried to cover the ‘NUS LAW’ logo on my shirt in case the passer-by directed that question to me. I focussed my attention on our warriors in red: Our dedicated team arrived early in the morning to...
LawMed 2017: Captain's Ball

LawMed 2017: Captain’s Ball

It is sometimes frustrating that man plays second fiddle to nature – for example, when one has taken the time to plan something, only for the weather to threaten to ruin everything. The day of the LawMed Captain’s Ball match was one of such instances. The weather was not kind – cloudy skies, intermittent strong winds and persistent lightning...
