The intersection between Law and Life Sciences is
an expansive one, cutting across many critical and controversial
areas including biotechnology, bioethics, environmental regulation,
forensic science, and the protection of intellectual property. The
Double Degree Programmes (DDPs) in Law and Life Sciences leverage
on the strength of Faculty of Law
in the legal dimensions of these issues and depth of technical expertise
of NUS Life Sciences, Faculty
of Science, in these areas. It will enable students to discover
the broad connections between law and life sciences and acquire
a broad expertise to occupy the niche position linking up both disciplines.
The two DDPs in Law (LL.B.) and Life Sciences (B.Sc.) was launched
in AY 2007/2008. The first is a 202-MC Double Honours Double Degree
(with Honours in Law and Life Sciences). The second is a 186-MC
Single Honours Double Degree (with Honours in Law).
