Singapore’s Supreme Court

img_8485.jpgOur “Business and the Environment” course had the opportunity to visit Singapore’s Supreme Court on Wednesday.  Fascinating to hear the story of this legal system and how this country’s judiciary has been taking active steps to market its system across Asia, especially as a preferred forum and choice of law system to resolve commercial disputes. We also had a chance to observe part of a criminal appeal that was taking place in the High Court.  One of the most interesting aspects of our visit was the back-story to the architecture of the building Supreme Court building.  The top floor is designed to resemble a space ship (a flying saucer) and symbolizes the institution’s forward-leaning future-oriented perspective.
