SMU School of Law's Auditing Programme AY2013/2014 Term 2 (6 Jan to early April 2014)
CLE is pleased to invite members of the legal fraternity in Singapore and other interested parties to apply to audit selected courses offered by the SMU School of Law.
Persons auditing the course are welcome to attend and observe seminars taught by our instructors. They are exempted from course requirements (such as project assignments, final exams etc) and are expected to abide by the guidelines of the respective course instructors on class participation. Persons auditing the course should be highly proficient in English.
A certificate of attendance will be awarded at the end of the course, provided the person auditing the course has attended at least 75% of the relevant classes.
For practising lawyers who wish to claim for the Public CPD Points (under the SILE’s CPD Scheme), kindly note that participants may obtain the Public CPD points only if there is a minimum attendance rate of 75%. The final Public CPD points obtainable will be on a pro-rated basis based on the actual attendance rate.
- Example 1: No Public CPD points will be obtainable based on 60% attendance rate
- Example 2: 27 Public CPD points will be obtainable based on 75% attendance rate
- Example 3: 36 Public CPD points will be obtainable based on 100% attendance rate
Persons auditing the course will, for purposes of the course, be granted physical access to the SMU Li Ka Shing Library to refer to the books within the library and may borrow books from the Course Reserves section for 2 hours for use only within the library.
However persons auditing the course will not have borrowing privileges at the SMU Li Ka Shing Library. They also will not have access to the Library’s electronic databases (ebooks / ejournals / edatabases) and restricted copyrighted materials. In addition, there is no access to SMU sports facilities.
Persons auditing the course, and who are from overseas, are not entitled to apply for Student Visa. They will be required to apply for their own Visa / Pass by referring to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website - http://www.ica.gov.sg/.
