Cephas Tan is a graduate from the Double Degree Programme in Law and Liberal Arts. During his time with Yale-NUS, Cephas shared a suite with several classmates who majored in Mathematical, Computational and Statistical Sciences. This exposure to computer science has been a deeply enjoyable and intellectual journey, inspiring in Cephas a deep interest in the intersection of law and technology. With this interest, he has embarked on legal tech projects, such as Uppercase.sg, a website that provides a simple, user-friendly and efficient search engine for Parliamentary debates.

Cephas is pursuing a career in Osborne Clarke’s Singapore practice, where he will begin his training in the Telecommunications, Media and Technology department in January 2020 after his bar examinations.

“I was first attracted to this programme for its interdisciplinary curriculum — which I believed to be crucial for lawyers to navigate today’s extremely quick-paced world. Five years into this programme, I have been convinced.”
