Thirty years of excellence
“A BIG thank you to ATC principal and chief executive officer Dr Danny Choong, all my lecturers and classmates for their kind encouragement during the whole period of my degree. I could not have pulled this off without them – this achievement is as much theirs as it is mine,” comments an ecstatic Lee Mei Xian, ATC’s recent success story.
Lee was awarded a First Class Honours Law Degree (LLB) from the University of London for its May 2015 examination.
Founded in the year 1987, ATC has helped fulfil the dreams of many in receiving credible legal qualification by providing the prestigious 3+0 LLB (University of London) programme.
The LLB programme at ATC is uniquely structured in providing both full- and part-time classes in facilitating the various aspirations and needs of its students.
Recognising the fact that it can be rather daunting to initially orientate oneself to the distinctive features and skills needed to study law, informative introductory classes are usually provided at early stages of the course to help build students’ confidence.
ATC has an equal mix of lecturers from both academic and the legal practice world who not only imparts legal knowledge, but also helps shape the minds of undergraduates.
The study of LLB particularly demands students to develop a critical appreciation of the English common law legal tradition and at the same time, hone their ability to think and write analytically and argumentatively.
Through lectures, students are provided a thorough understanding of the various dynamic areas of English law while tutorials focused on equipping students with the correct examination techniques.
As an affiliate centre of the University of London, ATC benefits from lectures provided occasionally by visiting lecturers from the university itself.
Its students also benefit from the comprehensive sets of law reports and updated textbooks and related materials made available in the Tun Abdul Hamid Law Resource Centre (Library).
A computer lab with internet connection is also made available to encourage undergraduates to improve their online research skills.
The LLB can be a long and arduous journey, but ATC maintains a culture of not leaving its students alone.
Those requiring guidance are always able to access and receive personal assistance from the faculty members.
Besides, various students’ activities are held throughout the year to make the LLB journey a memorable and valuable one.
This includes mooting competition, law career fair, sport’s day and students’ night, to name a few.
ATC recently celebrated its 30 years of excellence and has a proud record of being the nation’s only private law school that has produced 16 First Class graduates for the University of London’s International Bachelor of Laws (LLB) Programme.
Determined to constantly improve and continue the tradition of producing world-class graduates, ATC is further developing its LLB course for the academic year of 2016/2017 by offering interesting modules namely, Civil and Criminal Procedure and International Protection of Human Rights.
