A Day in the Life of the Average NUS Law Student

A Day in the Life of the Average NUS Law Student

4.30am  Like most law students, I like to start the day right.  In the first ten minutes of my morning routine, I drink a cup of cold water, meditate for seven minutes, and do at least five minutes of high-intensity interval training. I brush my teeth and cleanse my face — I use a Chanel...

The Importance of Seating Well

The Importance of Seating Well

I’m not a good student, but there are those who are. I’m not a bad student, but there are those who are. I’m just somewhere in between.  Good, bad, just somewhere in between – all of us choose our seats in tutorials with our own rationales, subconscious or intentional. I’ve interviewed students who identify as...

All About Appreciation: Pro Bono Appreciation Event 2022

Taking in the rows of students dressed in suits in the Auditorium on Monday, 25 July 2022, one might think that they were there that evening to attend a private screening of Minions: The Rise of Gru.
