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. [...]

My experience applying to SUSS School of Law

Looking back on the process of applying to SUSS School of Law ("SOL"), I think it will be helpful to share about my personal experience. Our SOL is really diverse. It is made up of people from all walks of life with different experiences and from different disciplines. Consequently, the age range of the students [...]

Observations by a ‘Kkondae’ Intern

During this term break, I had the good fortune of spending two months as an intern in a law firm. It was a glimpse into the possible future and an eye-opener to the real work behind the 'glamour' of being a lawyer. Firstly, please forget what you binge-watched on Netflix, whether it was Suits or [...]

Not many of my friends know that I am pursuing a law degree. This may come as a surprise as I blog and am starting to create videos about my life as a mid-career law student. Thus at times, I get to sit down and chat with some people and get to know their thoughts [...]

Young Enough, Good Enough

Recently, I came across a LinkedIn article on the 'Imposter' syndrome.  In essence, it is the feeling that you are a fake at what you do and you fear being called out for being an imposter. This syndrome plagues everyone including some of us who are pursuing this law degree, perhaps past our prime. I, [...]

Genesis

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.

An apology without change is just manipulation

Saw this on Twitter awhile back, gave me a good chuckle! Semester 1 down, many more to go! Watching "Law School" while actually in law school was interesting.

Crying Fowl: It’s Wild!

I live near Sungei Api Api. And I have often seen roosters and chickens roaming freely.  I have never paid them much attention until I had to study the Wildlife Act. Of late, there has also been much media attention on otters, monitor lizards, pythons, owls and wild boars, in our midst, boldly coming into [...]

The rights of an accused
