  4. Youth Justice in Singapore – Rehabilitation, Reintegration, Restoration

    The guiding philosophy of the youth justice system in Singapore is that youth offending is best contained and prevented through rehabilitation of the youth offender. This involves re-integrating the youth offender with his family and the community, and necessitates the youth offender taking responsibility both for his wrongdoing as well as his future.

     

    This book sets out and analyses the relevant laws and procedures, case-law and court processes in the youth justice arena. In addition to the legal materials, the book explores the roles played by various parties in the rehabilitation of the youth offender, including probation officers, social workers, institutional staff, family members, and school personnel. It sets out key youth justice programmes, practices, relevant research, and case studies.

     

    Containing a wealth of useful information, insights and analysis, this book is an excellent guide and resource for anyone working with youths, from lawyers to youth workers, educators to parents, and more generally, anyone who is interested in learning more about the youth justice system in Singapore.

    A publication by Academy Publishing in collaboration with the Singapore Judicial College, Singapore Rules of Court: A Practice Guide offers incisive commentaries on the Rules of Court 2021 written by a select group of contributing authors. The commentaries offer valuable insight into and understanding of the thinking behind these rules, as most of the authors did work involving this revolutionary set of civil procedure rules before it came into effect on 1 April 2022. The editors, Justice Chua Lee Ming and Judge Paul Quan, provided guidance, lending their first-hand knowledge of and experience with the new rules in the Civil Justice Commission and subsequently in the Rules of Court Implementation Team. True to its form, Singapore Rules of Court: A Practice Guide features a quick reference format that, together with the succinct commentaries, makes it a handy court companion for the bench and practitioners. The legislation reproduced in this edition is up to date as of 29 November 2022.

  7. Annotated Guide to the Singapore Insolvency Legislation

    Singapore’s insolvency and debt restructuring framework has undergone tremendous change in the last decade. From the incorporation of elements of the US Chapter 11 bankruptcy regime and adoption of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Cross-Border Insolvency, to the restriction of the application of ipso facto clauses, these reforms ensure that the regime continues to remain responsive to the needs of debtors, creditors and the economy.

     

    With the coming into force of the Insolvency Restructuring and Dissolution Act 2018 in July 2020, the Act consolidates the personal and corporate insolvency provisions, previously found in two separate statutes, into a single piece of legislation. This also represents the culmination of various phases of legislative reform – building on earlier amendments to the now repealed Bankruptcy Act and Companies Act.

     

    As Singapore’s principal insolvency legislation and one of the largest standalone bills introduced in Parliament, Annotated Guide to the Singapore Insolvency Legislation – Corporate Insolvency provides detailed commentary of various provisions in the Act in a simple and clear manner. This includes references to case law, comparable legislation and law reform recommendations.

     

    Authored by the persons who worked on the Act, this offers an authoritative and comprehensive account not only for insolvency professionals, but also anyone seeking a starting point to better understand the Act.
