Gender Equity and the Rule of Law

“Gender Equity and the Rule of Law: Perspectives from Singapore and the United States”

Delivered by  Judge Allyson Kay Duncan, Federal Judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit

Synopsis  This lecture was organised by the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, NUS with the Embassy of the United States of America, and supported by the Singapore Academy of Law. In this engaging lecture, Judge Allyson Kay Duncan shares empirical data and personal anecdotes to advance the view that “Gender equity is more than just reflective of rule of law; it’s an integral part of what ‘rule of law’ is.” She also shares some comparative Singapore-US perspectives on the topic.

A category by any other name … is a different category! So here’s a quick reference for what goes where on e-Lex.sg:

Beyond the Law

Videos in this category are on non-law topics and issues which you may nevertheless find useful to the legal work that you do. For example, if you practise IT Law or Biomedical Law, videos on cutting-edge technologies and medical advancements and the thorny issues they raise for society and commerce would be found here.

Blackletter Law

This is the bread and butter stuff that we associate legal learning most readily with. Videos include discussion about the impact of cases, legislation and regulations on legal issues which you may confront as part of your legal work.

Law in Context

Legal work does not take place in a silo. So that our deep technical knowledge is matched with an appreciation of how the law is situated within specific and real-world situations, the videos in this category give you the big picture view having regard to socio-political, economic, cultural and normative perspectives.

Legal Skills

You know the saying “It’s not about what you know, but what you can do?” These videos focus on practical tips for the ‘doing’ of legal work. For example, best practices on drafting contracts, strategies for effective negotiation, and how to approach corporate transactional work as an exercise in practical problem solving are the types of topics in this this category.

Practise Well

What we know and do as legal professionals is, however, also dependent on who we are. This category focuses on professional responsibility and wellbeing. Topics include strategies for effective time and stress management, coaching and mentoring approaches, pro bono service and collaborative practice.
