NUS Law Prof in CPIB probe over sex-for-grade deal with final year law student
Posted by temasektimes on July 25, 2012
A prominent law professor from the Law Faculty, National University of Singapore was arrested by the Corrupt Practice Investigation Bureau (CPIB) in April this year for allegedly soliciting sex from a final year law undergraduate in return for acing her grades.
According to media reports, the law graduate had sex with her professor on ‘multiple occasions’ and was eventually given a ‘A’ in her final year papers. She has since graduated and is now working at a law firm.
When approached by the media, a spokesperson from NUS confirmed the probe and said the school is cooperating with CPIB. It is understood that a few NUS staff were called up for questioning too including the female undergraduate who allegedly approached the professor for her final year elective.
The grading for the final year elective is very important as it determines if a fresh law graduate is able to land a job upon graduation.
