With a rich heritage spanning over 50 years, the NUS Faculty of Law is one of the finest law schools in the world, and is widely regarded as Asia’s leading law school. We believe in creative and independent learning. Research opportunities, continuous assessment, tutorials, presentations and seminar-style teaching are emphasised, bolstered by the finest law library in all of Asia.

Home to an outstanding permanent faculty with law degrees from more than a dozen jurisdictions, the Law School is an institution dedicated to building a community and an environment in which faculty and students can discuss and reflect on the fundamental legal issues that affect societies in today’s globalised world.

Whether you pursue a four-year Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree, a three year Graduate LLB (GLB) Programme or any of our Double or Concurrent Degree Programmes, you will be assured of a quality legal education at Asia’s Global Law School. Curriculum-wise, around half of the required subjects in the LLB programme are compulsory common law courses that are critical for legal practice. There are also skills courses in the Legal Skills Programme that foster creative thinking and independent learning. There is thus a good balance between compulsory and elective modules. With most compulsories completed by Year Two, there is flexibility for you to craft your own menu of elective modules in Years Three and Four. You can opt for electives in areas such as Asian Legal Studies, Corporate & Financial Services Law, Intellectual Property & Technology Law, International & Comparative Law, International Arbitration & Dispute Resolution, Maritime Law, Law & Society, Research and Skills (or to do any of these while on overseas student exchange). Such flexibility and course diversity are unparalleled and are made possible only because of the excellent and diverse teaching staff at the Law School!
