The Singapore Management University (SMU), School of Law
Strategically located within one kilometer of the Supreme Court and various law firms, The Singapore Management University (SMU), School of Law will further promote these links and engagement, providing an ideal environment for students, alumni and fraternity to meet and interact.
SMU, School of Law’s planned floor area of 22,000 square metres is about the size of three soccer pitches. Designed to meet BCA’s Green Mark Platinum standards, with sustainable features that will bring maximum energy savings, it also respects the urban fabric of the Civic District and builds upon the porosity of the city campus to promote engagement with the community, as a 24/7 public link between Armenian Street and Stamford Green.
A key feature integrated into the new building is the Kwa Geok Choo Law Library. The 2,600 square metres Law Library will take on a distinct architectural form that is reminiscent of a pearl. It will seat more than 500 users and will be fully equipped with modern technology and wired for legal research.
