During a recent visit to Asia Pacific, Professor Jenny Hamilton, Director of the Undergraduate Laws Programme, made a courtesy visit to meet with staff and students of Atma Jaya Catholic University of Indonesia, in Jakarta. We anticipate that Atma Jaya will commence the process for recognition shortly, to become the first recognised teaching institution to deliver the Undergraduate Laws Programme in Indonesia. We look forward to welcoming students onto the programme!
Professor Hamilton then travelled on to Malaysia, meeting with the Director of the Legal Profession Qualifying Board, Aliza Sulaiman, to discuss the Undergraduate Laws Programme in Malaysia and update her on developments, and where she also visited SEGi College, a teaching institution in Sarawak.
A highlight of the trip to Malaysia was the Advance Tertiary College’s annual graduation ceremony. The 23rd ceremony of its kind saw ATC’s finest students graduate with a University of London LLB. Not only does the ceremony celebrate the fantastic academic achievements of our students, Professor Hamilton and distinguished guests were treated to an evening’s entertainment of singing and dancing by ATC’s multi-talented students (and staff!).
Prospective law students in Malaysia also had the opportunity to find out more information about the University of London at the Facon Education Fair, where Jenny gave a presentation on the Laws Programme and answered questions from the audience.
The final stop for Jenny was Singapore, where she paid formal visits to longstanding partners Stansfield College and TMC Academy, as well as meeting with representatives from other local institutions. Our student numbers continue to grow in Singapore and we await the imminent findings from the Committee review into the supply of lawyers in Singapore.
