New course offers insight into South-, East-, and Southeast-Asian law

The National University of Singapore (NUS) Faculty of Law announced it will be offering a new LL.M. program in Asian Legal Studies starting in August 2007.

According to Faculty of Law website, the new program "allows students to study in depth the laws, legal systems, institutions and legal traditions of South, Southeast, and East Asia, as well as affords the opportunity to focus on particular areas of law (e.g. commercial law, constitutional law and international law) as these are treated across the dynamic continent that is Asia."

The course will also "enable students to understand not only the law in its wider cultural context, but to appreciate its linkages with regional commerce, trade and politics."

Applications for the August 2007 intake are being accepted until November 15, 2006.
