Class Reunions

 Madam Halimah Yacob '78 became Singapore's first female Speaker of Parliament when she assumed the position in January this year. However, another fact that makes her special is that she is an alumna of NUS Law, having graduated from the Class of 1978. She speaks to LawLink about her experiences in her new post so far. While the well-known advocate of workers' interests has no fear negotiating out of tight spots in the labour field, she also reveals a little-known fact: her fear of enclosed spaces. By Alessa Pang '13
