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. For this year’s edition, the author has the pleasure of providing in-depth coverage straight out of the players’ bench....
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?”)....

LawMed 2017: Floorball (Men)

TLDR WE WERE 1st RUNNER UP.   In the wee hours of Sunday morning, a group of young men woke up and eagerly grabbed their sticks to make their way down for the Law-Med floorball match. (With the exception of Ryan Ong who had no respect for the reporting time and sauntered in an hour...
LawMed 2017: Tchoukball

LawMed 2017: Tchoukball

As of time of writing, I have become possibly the only person in the history of NUS Law to have ever attended two consecutive Tchoukball competitions. In light of this revelation, I hereby declare that I have become, consequently, the number one fan of Tchoukball in the Faculty of Law, for now and possibly forever....
LawMed 2017: Contract Bridge

LawMed 2017: Contract Bridge

Last year at the Inter-Faculty Games, Team Law fought tooth and nail in an arduous battle that spanned two long days. Victory was at hand, but Team Law narrowly missed a shot at the finals after Medicine squeezed a 1.8-point lead that dashed the hopes and dreams of Team Captain Simon Poh (Y2). He swore...
Law IV 2017: An Interview with the Production Heads

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...
IFG Roundup: Netball

IFG Roundup: Netball

  After several false starts, the Netball IFGs, which were postponed once due to the haze and then again because of the rain, kicked off at 12.30pm at the Netball courts near Utown. I arrived at the tail end of warm-ups and players were doing last minute stretches, trimming their finger nails to pass the...
IFG Roundup: DOTA 2

IFG Roundup: DOTA 2

For those who are new to the world of gaming (shame on you), DOTA 2 is a team game, where each team of five players start alongside their throne at opposing ends of the map. The main objective is to take down the enemy throne with superb teamwork and objective aggression. Law team (Team SEEDZ)...
IFG Roundup: Dodgeball

IFG Roundup: Dodgeball

On a freezing, pouring Saturday morning, the Law IFG dodge ball team braved the rain and gathered in the UTown Sports Hall 1 in an attempt to bring glory to the revered name of NUS Law. Bearing in mind our greatest achievement in the previous year (a single draw), we endeavoured to overcome all odds...
IFG Roundup: Basketball (Men's)

IFG Roundup: Basketball (Men’s)

Dr James Naismith really knew what he was doing. In December 1891, he nailed a peach basket onto a ten-foot pole, and got players to throw soccer balls inside. Balls had to be manually retrieved after every goal, and the laces on the ball made the bouncing unpredictable and erratic. Move forward one hundred and...
