Applications Open for LLM (Int'l Business Law) - taught in Singapore & Shanghai


NUS-LLM
Obtain a sterling law degree while studying in two of Asia's great cities. Applications are now open for the NUS LLM in International Business Law programme. This is a collaboration between the National University of Singapore (NUS) and the East China University of Politics and Law (ECUPL) in Shanghai, China.

The degree is awarded solely by NUS. Students will spend the first two months (August and September) in Singapore, where they will read 2 subjects and undertake internships with leading law firms, government agencies or the courts. They will then spend seven months (October to April) at ECUPL's downtown Changning campus in Shanghai, where professors from both NUS and ECUPL will offer a total of 10 subjects.

The programme provides a solid legal foundation in international business and financial transactions law. The cutting-edge subjects taught include comparative corporations law, banking and international payments, international taxation, commercial arbitration, international and comparative law of sale, international corporate finance, international investment law, cross-border commercial transactions and Chinese intellectual property law.

The programme lasts 10 months, requiring the study of 10 subjects in total, and is taught entirely in English by leading NUS and ECUPL faculty. The course is primarily targeted at students from outside Asia who desire a comprehensive English-language specialization in international business law, with a focus on emerging Asian markets such as China. It also provides students from non-common law backgrounds with an overview of common law principles relevant to international business and commerce. Finally, the course offers students a unique and unparalleled opportunity to live and study in two great Asian financial centres, Singapore and Shanghai.

The tuition fee is US$6500 (or S$10000, 5000 Euros or RMB 50,000). Accommodation is available near or within both campuses in Singapore and Shanghai. Applications close 15 January 2007.

1. Finding a job in Singapore is possible, but naturally, cannot be guaranteed. A lot depends on factors like previous relevant experience, grades obtained in the course, recommendation by professors, the individual's performance in an interview (proficiency in English), and the state of the economy. Going by the experience of previous LLM classes, several of our graduates have found jobs in Singapore. They tend to be from countries where Singapore law firms have a lot of business, e.g. India, China, Indonesia and the EU.

2. Unfortunately not. Since this course takes place for the most part in Shanghai, the NUS tuition fee loan does not apply. We have actually kept this in mind, and structured the fees to be very competitive.
