Ruth holds a Bachelor of Laws degree from a National University of Singapore and a Masters of Commercial Law from Monash University, Australia.
Ruth’s career has been largely as an in-house counsel - with statutory boards and private companies in the telecommunication and info-communication industry. Qualified as a solicitor in both Singapore and Victoria, Australia, Ruth has experienced the differences in the educational environment in both countries.
She embarked on teaching as a second career because of her passion for students and a desire to impart knowledge. She encourages her students to think and better themselves. The challenge in teaching law is to make the law relevant to business students. She recently obtained a master of Education from Deakin University, Australia in 2012.
