NUS Law and the Melbourne Law School set up a joint research grant to facilitate research cooperation between the two law schools. This research grant is an opportunity to build on existing research collaborations by setting up stronger ties between the institutions – thus furthering high-quality research cooperation in the region.

This year, the collaboration led to the inaugural Asia Pacific Military Justice Workshop that was held on 20 and 21 September 2016 at the NUS Bukit Timah Campus. The aim of the workshop is to explore developments in military justice systems in the Asia Pacific region from a comparative perspective. In particular, the workshop aimed to identify and analyse the domestic and international law factors that have driven change in the region.

The NUS has produced a great summary of the workshop which can be read here.
