Fact-Finding and Reality : A Judicial Decision-Making Primer

In collaboration with the Singapore Judicial College and Academy Publishing, this is the first bench series in Singapore featuring the philosophy which drives the pedagogy of the Singapore Judicial College – first, to have judges teaching judges; and second, delivering judicial education that is relevant in the judicial context. Fact-Finding and Reality may well be the very first attempt to examine important aspects of judicial decision-making, reasoning and fact-finding from the lens of a serving Singapore judge. The discussion links to how judges evaluate evidence and assess the credibility of witnesses, distilling and synthesising established theories from a corpus of literature on the subject and contextualising them using Singapore cases. An invaluable bench guide, this monograph is a must-read for all judges in Singapore, especially those newly appointed to the bench.
