NUS Law welcomed Mr Patrick Wee ’89, Mr Wong Kok Hoe ’89, Ms Wong Peck Lin ’94, Ms Lyn Lee ’96 and Mr Dany Leong ’96 to the Bukit Timah campus for lunch on 16 May 2013.

Besides being alumni of NUS Law, the guests also have one thing in common: they have left the legal profession to pursue business ventures in various fields. The event was hosted by NUS Law Dean, Prof Simon Chesterman, who was also accompanied by Prof Tan Cheng Han ’87, Assoc Prof Debbie Ong ’89 and Ms Trina Gan ’04.

The alumni shared with us their challenges doing business in Singapore, as well as how their years in NUS Law and the legal profession have benefited them in the business world. They also provided feedback on the curriculum review currently undertaken by NUS Law, and on ways to provide a more well-rounded legal education for our students. 

Proving that the grass is always greener on the other side, one guest jokingly promised that a stint at her company would encourage any lawyer to appreciate the legal profession even more! It was a lovely afternoon catching up with everyone and NUS Law hopes to host more of such gatherings.
