University rank #11 (QS) ,
The NUS Faculty of Law and the East China University of Political Science and Law (ECUPL), one of China's top law schools, jointly launched the specialist LLM in International Business Law (IBL) degree programme in July 2005. 

About

The programme is taught entirely in English, and is offered partly in Singapore, and partly in Shanghai. It is the first overseas degree programme to be offered by the NUS Faculty of Law. Students who successfully complete the degree requirements will obtain an LLM (International Business Law) degree conferred solely by NUS (i.e. the degree is not a joint degree).

Building on the expanding links between Singapore and the People's Republic of China, this programme signifies another innovative step towards the NUS Law School's vision of becoming a leading global law school. Indeed, the NUS Law School has been at the forefront of curriculum developments to make legal education more international and comparative in orientation. Staffed by an outstanding international faculty with degrees from leading law schools from more than a dozen jurisdictions, NUS academic staff continues to make an impact internationally with their teaching and research. The approval of the Chinese authorities for this programme is a further validation of the high reputation that the NUS Law School enjoys both within and outside Asia. This is particularly true given the fact that China receives a large number of applications for degree programmes involving foreign educational institutions.
