LawMed 2017: Debates

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. Both teams convened in the Auditorium, ready to spill blood. Perhaps to reflect current concerns, the motion this year struck close to home. The questioned...

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...

LawMed 2017: Dota 2

What’s DOTA 2? DOTA 2 or DotA (as it was originally known) is the Defence of the Ancients 2, is a multiplayer online battle arena game where five players take on another five in a super complicated fight where deaths do not matter at all – but rather the Defence of your Ancient. Since its...

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...

LawMed 2017: Basketball (Men’s)

It is that time of the year again. That’s right folks, the annual LawMed games (men’s basketball series) is back again to showcase the finest players of the sport from both the Law and Medicine faculties.

LawMed 2017: Volleyball (Men's)

LawMed 2017: Volleyball (Men’s)

One thing I remember being told countless times by many different volleyball enthusiasts is that volleyball is a rather mechanical sport. One guy gets the ball in control (the dig), the next guy pushes into the air (the set) and the last guy tries to slam it into the opponent’s half of the court (the...
LawMed 2017: Basketball (Women's)

LawMed 2017: Basketball (Women’s)

Once upon a time, I naively thought that basketball meant “ooh, assault” and “ooh, battery”. I stand corrected (as my Learned Friend whispered to me as I was wincing at a spectacular fall of one of the players, “You know that there’s a reason why we don’t get basketball match related cases for torts, right?”)....
