Singapore Management University (SMU) to Launch an LL.M. in Judicial Studies

New LL.M. designed for serving judges and judicial aspirants both in and outside of Singapore

Singapore Management University (SMU) has partnered with Singapore Judicial College to offer a new LL.M. in Judicial Studies.

The new LL.M. is designed for serving judges and judicial aspirants both in and outside of Singapore. During the program, degree candidates will undertake judicial attachments and dissertations.

The LL.M. in Judicial Studies can be completed in ten months, across two academic terms. Students also have the option of taking a leave of absence between the two terms, in order to balance their studies with work commitments.

The program's curriculum includes six core classes, that cover topics like Judicial Mediation, Judgecraft, and Advanced Law of Obligations, among others. After completing the core classes, students will have the opportunity to take two credit units of electives, chosen from classes like International Law, Finance, and Politics of South East Asia, among others.

The class size is expected to be around 25 participants.

With the new program, SMU joins a small group of law schools offering LL.M. programs in Judicial Studies. In 2011, Duke Law School launched a Judicial Studies LL.M.

SMU's LL.M. in Judicial Studies will launch in the fall of 2019. Applications are open now and will close on May 1, 2019.

For more information, please see SMU's news release announcing the launch of the LL.M. in Judicial Studies.
