Legal professional privilege is of fundamental importance to both providers and users of legal services, but remains in many respects a technical and often overlooked area of law. The comprehensive treatment afforded to the subject in this book makes it a valuable resource for all practising lawyers, in-house counsel, courts and arbitrators, both in Singapore and in other common law jurisdictions.

 

This second edition is revised and updated to reflect the 2020 Revised Edition of Acts, the new Rules of Court 2021 and the Singapore International Commercial Court Rules 2021, as well as a number of important local and international judgments handed down since the publication of the first edition.

Summary

    This is the first dedicated text on legal professional privilege in Singapore, containing an exhaustive and structured discussion of all aspects of legal professional privilege. Both the doctrine of legal advice privilege and litigation privilege are critically evaluated, and close attention is paid to how they have been approached under the Evidence Act 1893 and other written laws, as well as at common law, and the differences between each regime. The book discusses all of the leading decisions in Singapore on the topic of legal professional privilege, but also draws on important cases from England, Australia, Hong Kong and other common law jurisdictions. In addition, reference is made to relevant secondary literature and policy issues, and suggestions are offered for legislative reform. This second edition is revised and updated to reflect the 2020 Revised Edition of Acts, the new Rules of Court 2021 and the Singapore International Commercial Court Rules 2021, as well as a number of important local and international judgments handed down since the publication of the first edition.
