The NUS Law Freshmen Orientation is a yearly tradition organised and executed by Year 2 seniors for the incoming freshmen of NUS Law. The objectives of Law Orientation are to forge strong bonds and friendships among the freshmen and to provide an enriching experience so that freshmen will adopt a positive outlook towards school life. At NUS Law, we also aim to achieve zero incidents and uphold the image of NUS and NUS Law.
NUS Law Freshmen Orientation comprises 4 main events: Law Camp, Pro Bono, RAG & Flag and Matriculation Week. More information on these events can be found below.
A session that signals the start of the transition from potential students to Freshmen thrilled at and eager for Orientation. Freshmen will be treated to a preview of law school by the Deanery, Professors, and seniors.
A 4-day-long residential camp designed to break down barriers and create lasting fun-filled memories, Law Camp aims to foster new friendships between the incoming freshmen and seniors through games, sharing sessions and the general experience of staying in camp together.
Pro Bono Projects
Pro Bono, which means “for the public good”, is a form of voluntary work that lawyers engage in during their careers, and forms a strong tradition in law school. Curated projects part of Orientation 2018 are enriching experiences that instil within the Freshmen a greater sense of voluntarism and give them their first taste of legal work.
A week dedicated to equipping Freshmen with the information and resources needed to start law school on the right foot. In contrast to Law Camp which is designed to foster cohesion, Matriculation Week takes on an academic slant to introduce Freshmen to the rigour of this course.
Freshman Inauguration Ceremony
Welcome to the Law Faculty! The Freshmen Inauguration Ceremony is a welcoming ceremony held in the Auditorium, where key members of the Law Faculty (e.g. deanery) will address all incoming freshmen, followed by a badge-pinning ceremony.
The Gala Dinner is a formal social event for the freshmen to commemorate the end of their orientation experience and to usher in the start of their journey in NUS Law. A night for everyone to dress up, let loose and celebrate, the Gala Dinner will be a fun-filled night to mark the end of Orientation 2018.
RAG and Flag
A charity performance for the community that allows freshmen to showcase the result of months of sweat and tears. Intricate float designs and spectacular dance performances will be presented to the entire university, alumni, and public audiences who are often drawn to the event.
