Singapore President Halimah Yacob attended the National University of Singapore law school’s commencement ceremony recently.
Mdm Halimah was appointed the university’s 10th chancellor last November.
She is herself an NUS almuni, having graduated from the NUS Faculty of Law in 1978 with a bachelor’s degree. She earned her master’s in law in 2001 also from NUS.
During the ceremony, Justice Chao, aged 75, was presented an honorary Doctor of Laws by Mdm Halimah.
NUS president Tan Eng Chye told the law graduates that attributes such as curiosity, empathy and determination, would be required for them to succeed.
