Summary: Dr. Lincoln Wee
Vis Integritatis Consultancy Pte Ltd
School of Law
Please summarise your early studies, where did you take your first degree
and why? Why did you choose that subject? Did you find it interesting
when you were a child?
First degree LLB at Hull University; Bar Finals, in London and called to
Middle Temple; LLM at Hull University with a scholarship.
I always wanted to be a medical practitioner, but I didn't do too well in
Chemistry, so although I was admitted in pre-med courses in the United
States, my parents did not allow me to take them up. I read law because I
had taken it as a subject for my High School Certificate and it was of
some interest to me. My mom somehow persuaded me to read law.
I ended up in Hull because although I had intended to go to the National
University of Singapore, my parents wanted me overseas. My father went
to a British universities fair in Singapore and Hull University was the first
booth on the right as one entered the hall. He gave them my results, they
said "yes", he went home and I went to Hull.
