Singapore Management University held the groundbreaking ceremony of its School of Law building today. The event, which was graced by The Honourable Attorney-General Mr Steven Chong, S.C., was attended by 250 distinguished guests, faculty, students, donors, and SMU’s partners in the legal fraternity. The new School of Law building will be a distinctive landmark that will contain state-of-theart facilities used both to enrich the learning experience of SMU law students as well as to involve others within the legal fraternity who are important stakeholders. A key feature integrated into the 22,000 sqm School of Law building is the Kwa Geok Choo Law Library, named in memory of the late Madam Kwa Geok Choo, wife of former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. The 2,600 sqm Law Library will take on a distinct architectural form that is reminiscent of a pearl. It will sit more than 500 users, and will be fully equipped with modern technology and wired for legal research in the 21st century. Also housed within the new School of Law building are the David Marshall Moot Court, the SMU Pro Bono Centre and other research centres.
