NUS LLM 2011/12


imarkon

When you choose the option that you are from common law background, you will find at the end of the next page asking whether you have studied Company Law,(a compulsory module for C&FSL) If yes, YOU have to mention- in which year, what was the name of the module studied and the grade you got in that subject.


how do you do this? and where?

@Dhar: After I accepted the offer from Utown I stopped looking for alternative accommodation. The place seems nice and social, and as long as I'm not in Singapore, it's hard to find anything better. If I'm not satisfied I guess I'll just find something else after the first semester.

Anyway, I just selected modules for the first semester. Since I'm from a non-common law country, there's not that many modules to elect for the first semester. And, today I've bought tickets to Singapore. I'm arriving the 24th of July. When are you guys coming?

@Fay: Looking forward to see you in the maritime class. I understand you come from the northern countries such as myself. Where are you from and where have you worked before moving to Singapore?

Mads, I am from Finland. (so, even though I do speak also Swedish, I guess we have to communicate in English since I am not native Swedish speaker..I think I have some problems to understand Norwegian :) ). I have worked in a Finnish shipping company for a year now and have planned to return to my current position after my LL.M studies. Before shipping industry, I have worked as an associate lawyer in attorneys-at-law office and at that time my assignments related mostly in dispute resolution (arbitration proceedings). Looking forward to meet to you too! We could consider together if we want to look for alternative accommodation. I have also accepted the Utown offer but I am not sure if that is the place I wanna stay both semesters.. So in case you find something and are interested in having roommate, pls inform me. I am arriving 25th of July, also just booked flights!!

@Fay: Al'right, Finland, cool. I'm not traveling to Singapore to speak Norwegian anyway, so no prob. As you, I'm not sure wether to live on campus the second semester, but we'll see. I don't even now if my room has aircondition, and I've heard that it's crucial. If not, I'll be happy to find something together.

I understand that you have some more experience than me. It's a good thing to have tried the field in practice. I guess you have the same system as in Norway with a five year long Masters programme. Will you be taking the common law classes?

Anyway, looking forward to Singapore, will be awesome! See all you guys soon :)

Hey all!
Do you have any idea about job prospects in Singapore . There are several International law firms there, don't know if they recruit from the campus. I mean it shall be really great if one gets to work there. Has any body heard anything regarding this from previous year students.

Please Clarify anyone...

I asked the same, i.e. is it possible to check-in on 25th and this is what they replied:

"The earliest check-in to Graduate Residence at UTown is from 23 July 2011 onwards, and check-ins are during office hours (8.30am to 6.00pm). So your proposed check-in date on 25 July 2011 is fine with us."

They did not mention that any prior notice is needed so I understand that it is ok just to arrive and check-in.

I mailed them to:
ohs.gr@nus.edu.sg

I don't know if "Your confirmed check-in date for student accommodation" in the airport meeting form means actually that you have contacted the accom.place and confirmed anything but it might mean also a date you know that you will be able to check-in???

@Mads: I will be taking Common Law Legal System of Singapore, it's mandatory. It was not possible to take the other common law course, our skills will be tested in a separate exam at the beginning of August (I do not know any details on this so I guess I have to ask about it when I arrive to Singapore).

Yes, I have graduated LL.B (three year-degree) and LL.M (two year-degree). So altogether the program takes five years in Finland. I graduated LL.M in 2009.

@Ayeshia: i had a look at your link, there's also some other links for student passes above the one you've mentioned - did NUS tell you you had to get only this particular one or..? I think we have to get another email soon anyway, which should have this additional info, cos i had the same list as imarkon...

is anyone making it for the Intnl student orientations? and is anyone signing up for the events during the last week? and if so, which ones?

Is anyone staying off campus?

@Dhar: Nobody specifically intimated me about this. I was just double checking on the ICA website as a matter of abundant caution so as to not face any difficulties at immigration. I'm considering staying off campus.

As for the events/ student orientations , I have the same question for everyone. Is anyone joining?

Nothing really looks all that exciting! :)

So I get in on the 25th, (and I'm looking at living on Owen Rd, near Farrer Park) we have registration on the 28th in the morning at Bukit timah and then ICA registration at presumably Kent Ridge afterwards.. and the events are tours or physical/non physical activity based.. the campus tour is of KR and surrounding areas right? so won't entirely be useful... any thoughts?
