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...
LawMed 2017: Foosball

LawMed 2017: Foosball

tl;dr law won 6-1. This year’s LawMed foosball was almost as scintillating as the men’s football game in which our young lads led by Athletics Director Josiah Tham beat Medicine 1-0 the day before. In fact, it was probably more exciting. It was non-stop excitement the entire afternoon at BTC with 5 men’s doubles matches...
LawMed 2017: Soccer (Men)

LawMed 2017: Soccer (Men)

The next twist in the footballing rivalry between our two esteemed faculties took place on the afternoon of the 11th of February 2017. Having played to a 0-0 stalemate in our previous encounter at Inter-Faculty Games 2016 before watching Medicine eventually go on to lift the trophy, this was the chance for redemption. It was...
LawMed 2017: Badminton

LawMed 2017: Badminton

  Here’s how Badminton at LawMed 2016 went down: The first thing Kyle (Y3), the team captain, told me was that about half the proper Law badminton team was gone, and amongst them were our best players. Could team Law overcome this disastrous setback to pull an upset victory? After a series of warmups, team...
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...
IFG Roundup: Reversi

IFG Roundup: Reversi

The Law Reversi team kicked off its campaign for the 2016 Inter Faculty Games by chartering into the unfamiliar place that is the Kent Ridge Campus. With traditional powerhouses such as FASS, Science and Computing fielding veteran players, it looked like an interesting contest to come. The team comprised of, from left to right, Zamiq...
IFG Roundup: Women’s Basketball

IFG Roundup: Women’s Basketball

Whoever said that there was a “calm before the storm” prior to a great event clearly hasn’t seen an IFG women’s basketball tournament before. Picture yourself walking towards the indoor sport halls at UTown on a Sunday morning and being greeted with an amalgamation of different sounds. The squeaking of shoes scrapping against the floor...
IFG Roundup: Women's Soccer

IFG Roundup: Women’s Soccer

On 3rd September, with 3 subs, we scored 3 goals. Just kidding about the last part, we scored 0 goals. At the start of the day, it was evident how unprepared we were compared to the other faculties – half of us didn’t even have cleats and almost all of us were late. However, we...
