Wui Ling CHEAH is an Assistant Professor of Law at the National University of Singapore (NUS), where she is also a Research Fellow at the Centre of International Law. She holds a LLB and LLM from NUS, and a LLM from Harvard. For her postgraduate studies, she received a NUS scholarship and the Kathryn Aguirre Worth Memorial Scholarship. She is a qualified lawyer, called to the New York Bar, and has a diploma in arbitration from Queen Mary, University of London.

Prior to entering academia, Wui Ling served as a legal officer at Interpol's General Secretariat in Lyon, where she specialised in international criminal law and cross-border police cooperation. In 2011, she was a Visiting Professional at the International Criminal Court. Since 2010, she has served as an editor for the Torkel Opsahl Academic EPublisher (TOAEP), and as a Senior Adviser at the Forum for International Criminal Law and Humanitarian Law (FICHL).

Her research and publications focus on international criminal law and, more generally, on issues of criminal justice. During her stay in November 2012 at iCourts, Wui Ling will work on a research project in which she will employ a mix of interpretive methods from the disciplines of sociology and history in order to analyse the archival records of post-WWII trials conducted by the British in Southeast Asia.
