Professor Tommy Koh was one of the pioneer batch of law students at University of Malaya, along with former Attorney-General Chan Sek Keong, Mr T. P. B. Menon, and Emeritus Professor Koh Kheng Lian. In this clip, he recalled the honour and responsibility he felt as a student of law, and the experience of being taught by teachers who were themselves learning as they went along. His time there coincided with anti-colonial struggle and nation-building, an important period in Singapore’s history.
