The 4th Annual International Conference on Law, Regulations and Public Policy (LRPP) will be organised by the Global Science and Technology Forum (GSTF) for which you are kindly invited. The event will commence on June 8 – 9, 2015 in Singapore at the Fort Canning Hotel.
The laws of the land lay the foundations of peace and order, and to ensure people progress in all aspects of their lives – whether in business, education, travel, health or recreation. The role of public officials is to create, scrutinize, implement and uphold the laws in order to protect the rights of every individual, corporate entity or institution.
Educators of law thus possess the task of not only shaping each and every generation of legal practitioners into knowledgeable and responsible agents, but also the study of issues which surround the practice of law and its implementation across jurisdictions.
