Kenny Yang - Singapore

Institute: Murdoch University
URL: www.murdoch.edu.au
Location: Perth, Western Australia


 

Kenny Yang graduated with a First Class Honours in Bachelor of Laws (LLB) from Murdoch University in 2013 and was admitted to the Supreme Court of Western Australia.

He returned to Singapore to commence work as a Prosecutor at the Attorney-General’s Chambers, Singapore. He is also serving as a Mediator at the Small Claims Tribunal of the Subordinate Courts of Singapore on an ad-hoc basis.

In university, Kenny was an editor on the International Trade and Business Law Review and later embarked on the Honours Research program focusing on the topic of Prosecutorial Discretion. He was also on the Academic Council of Murdoch University and served as the President of the International Students’ Association at the university.

During the summer break of 2011/2012, Kenny undertook a clerkship with the Supreme Court of Western Australia and was attached to Chief Justice Wayne Martin. He was also rotated to experience the work of the State Administrative Tribunal of Western Australia.

On selecting Australia:

“Murdoch’s School of Law gave me ample opportunity to develop my interest in the law and legal research. Australia is also close to Singapore in terms of proximity and culturally, it is easy to assimilate into due to the huge community of international students studying and living in Australia.

The cost of living in Perth was also relatively reasonable and in general, Australia also offers an open and conducive environment for study. In addition to the legal and academic skills acquired, by virtue of living independently, I managed to pick up some culinary skills.”
