About Daryl Lum

Daryl is pursuing his Juris Doctor in Law at the Singapore University of Social Sciences. Other than his dreams of being called to the Singapore Bar, he hopes that he can become a professional football player (too old), a professional cyclist (too slow) and a professional gamer (too lousy). He will make peace with not achieving the latter three dreams so long as he gets his SUSS law degree and gets called to the Singapore Bar.

At the end of a very busy week…

When I meet friends that are furthering their studies in the midst of their careers, I've always wondered how it would be like juggling studies and work. I can now attest that this is [...]

It actually gets enjoyable after a while…

The first semester actually went by in a flash. There were three things that I had to get used to and I think this would come in handy for future batches coming into SUSS School of Law. Always remember that you're a student You are no longer the boss you may be at your workplace. [...]

Perhaps now it's an appropriate time to share how JustFollowLaw.com came about. I am a fledgling law student in a fledgling law school. I turn 40 this year and my last experience as an undergraduate some 19 years ago is already a distant memory. My main regret was that I did not take many photos [...]
