Offered since 2008, both schools come to mutual decision to discontinue program

New York University (NYU) School of Law has recently announced that the NYU@NUS LL.M. program collaboration with National University of Singapore (NUS) will end in 2014. The cohort that began program in May will be the program's last.

According to the NYU Law website, the Singapore-based program, which has run since 2008, is being discontinued "with regret."

"In the last few years, the cost of graduate legal education has risen significantly, and running the program in Singapore has been made possible by a generous grant by the government of Singapore to fund the numerous scholarships offered," according to a law school statement.

"Unfortunately, the program did not become self-financing in the way we had hoped it would; continuing it in its present form would entail a significant diversion of financial resources on the part of both NYU and NUS."
