How to draw NUS Law CATS: part one of a series of drawing lessons by someone who can barely draw for those who cannot draw at all

Hey guys! You might be surprised to see me again, since the post about exercises for legal success was supposed to be my last. However, I was returning a library book and discovered that I could borrow books until Commencement, which suggests that I get to enjoy all of the other privileged that I enjoyed...

Learning from Leon – Life in Law school, tips and more

In this high paced and competitive world, it is easy for one to keep running ahead without taking notice of those who fall behind. However, Leon Ngiam is not such a person. As one of the brightest minds in the Year 2 cohort, Leon creates weekly YouTube videos on law school vlogs, university applications, study...

IPPT Gold – the Kicking Guy Way!

(Note: This article was written in December 2018, well before the coronavirus pandemic. Please use your discretion when exercising outdoors – don’t run near others and you can consider wearing a face mask even though it’s not mandatory, because there are always sabo-kings who don’t follow the rules. That said, it’s a perfect time for...
39 Modular Credits: Law Club Interview (Part 3)

39 Modular Credits: Law Club Interview (Part 3)

The Law Club elections are long over by now, but we’ll all remember this round of elections as something different from the previous years’ — contested! Two factions (or rather, one faction and a single person) campaigning vigorously against each other at the start of the semester, handing out a variety of baked goods and...

Farewell, Prof. Fordham - Insights with Professor Margaret Fordham

Farewell, Prof. Fordham – Insights with Professor Margaret Fordham

Professor Fordham’s office, upon entering, is overwhelmingly homey. She has left her door open for us. The orange-tinted lamps are a stark contrast to the cold, fluorescent glow of the Federal Building lights outside. Her desk is decorated with ornaments and glass bowls full of stationery. She has the Tort Law study guide open in...

Minutes with Mindy – Insights with Professor Chen-Wishart

We met Professor Chen-Wishart at the lobby of the Eu Tong Sen building. There, she is seated comfortably on one of the lounge chairs, with her backpack and laptop seated on either side of her. We say hello, she says hello — and is very nice (even though we’re kinda late) — and we start the interview....

Getting Cozy with the 38th Law Club – Part 2

Of course, that never works since, as we all know, watching it online is a far better alternative. *Justified does not encourage piracy, watch it...

Welcome to Woonderland – Insights with Professor Walter Woon

Professor Woon’s office is packed — full of books, trophies, pictures, shelves, and just about everything. He sits comfortably, in his office chair, framed by the row of books (some, his own), arranged neatly. Behind the area where he works there is an alcove — as all staff offices do — with windows looking out...

Getting Cozy with the 38th Law Club – Part 1

The NUS Students’ Law Club (affectionately known as the “Law Club”) is a constituent club of NUS Students’ Union and is made up of the law undergraduate, graduate and masters students in NUS. Or at least that is what the page on Justified says. But that was back in 2011, where at least for most...
