School of Law



The School of Law (SOL) in Singapore Management University was established in 2007 with the aim of providing diversity in Singapore’s legal education landscape. The SOL offers a four-year full-time LLB programme, a five-year double-degree programme which combines law with SMU’s existing non-law programmes, as well as a full-time Juris Doctor (JD) and Master of Laws (LLM) programme. Its first cohort of law students graduated in 2011. SOL emerged as first runner-up in the Jessup Mooting Competition in 2013 and 2014, earning the distinction of being the first international team to make the finals on its international debut. The School also recently became the first Asian (and only non-European) institution to join the Themis Network. The distinguished faculty at SOL have postgraduate law degrees from renowned universities worldwide, such as Harvard, Yale, Stanford, Oxford, Cambridge and London. They have also amassed an impressive publication record with articles appearing in top law journals, including The Cambridge Law Journal, Modern Law Review, Oxford Journal of Legal Studies and Journal of Contract Law.
