Description

NUS Law was honoured to host 70 Law Deans at this year’s Asian Law Schools Deans’ Forum. The event, from 21 - 22 February 2017 took place at the historic NUS Bukit Timah Campus this year.

The forum was an opportunity for leaders from a select group of law schools to discuss the challenges facing legal education today, with a particular emphasis on the Asian region. This year, the focuses were on experiential learning (pro bono, clinical programmes), interdisciplinary programmes, and the changing role of technology in law schools and the legal profession. The Deans also explored the various roles Asian Law Schools can play – nationally, globally, but especially in the region.

The distinguished participants came from almost 50 institutions from Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Macau, Mongolia, Philippines, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
