About Jack Tsen-Ta LEE

I graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1995 and qualified as an advocate and solicitor of the Supreme Court of Singapore the following year. After practising for about six years as a litigator with a Singapore law firm, I took up postgraduate studies at University College London on a British Chevening Scholarship and was conferred an LLM in 2003. I then returned to Singapore and worked as an Assistant Director for the Singapore Academy of Law, a professional association of judges, lawyers, government legal officers and law academics. I completed my PhD studies at the University of Birmingham, United Kingdom, in 2012. My doctoral research examined the interpretation of bills of rights from a comparative law perspective.
I presently teach constitutional and administrative law, and media law, at the School of Law, Singapore Management University, and research administrative law, constitutional law, human rights law, media law, and cultural property and heritage law.
