NUS Law Academy

Working professionals can now build up their legal knowledge in industry-specific areas through courses at the National University of Singapore's (NUS) Law Academy, which caters to both practising lawyers and non-lawyers.

Currently, the academy offers courses specialising in international arbitration, maritime law and criminal justice, but the dean of NUS law school, Professor Simon Chesterman, said courses in intellectual property and technology law will be introduced in future.

"From brushing up on skills to learning about a new area of law, our aim is to provide a suite of modules for the working learner," said Prof Chesterman at the academy launch of the Law Academy yesterday at the NUS Kent Ridge campus.
