  1. The Law in His Hands: A Tribute to Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong

    This book celebrates the 75th birthday of former Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong. Comprising three Parts, the book underscores what has been an extraordinary life in the law displayed in all its manifold and variegated aspects. Part I of the book contains a short biographical essay and a number of speeches and interviews. In Part II, experts in the various fields of law synthesise and analyse the former Chief Justice’s contributions in the major areas of Singapore law. Part III contains a representative selection of Mr Chan’s publications and speeches, written or delivered in his capacity as both Attorney-General and Chief Justice – all marked by his characteristically deep scholarship as well as practical approach towards the law.

  2. Intellectual Property Law of Singapore (softcover edition)

    This book centres on the discussion of intellectual property law in Singapore. The chapters are categorised into six Parts: Introduction; Copyright; Patents, Innovation and Inventions; Designs; Trade Marks, Passing Off and Unfair Competition; and Confidential Information. Each Part is written with the objective that it may be studied on its own. However, as there may be overlapping rights between the categories, cross-referencing between Parts and chapters is necessary. Singapore’s intellectual property law, like that in many other countries, is intricately bound to a larger set of international legal norms and standards. Therefore, the study of this branch of the law is not complete without consideration of the historical perspectives as well as the influences of international treaties and conventions in the different categories of intellectual property.

  3. Law on Carriage of Goods By Sea - 3rd Edition

    After the second edition of this book was published in 1994, the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act was amended to give the Hague-Visby Rules the “force of law”. This brought the Singapore position on the effect of these Rules in line with UK law. Furthermore, the effect of the provisions of the Bills of Lading Act (“BLA”), and the corresponding UK statute, namely, the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act 1992, has been explained in many cases in Singapore and the UK. Since the last edition, other aspects of the law on carriage of goods by sea have also been clarified and there have been many important judicial pronouncements on the effect of the Hague Rules and the Hague-Visby Rules.

  5. Employment Law in Singapore - Cases and Materials

    Employment has been an area of especial focus in Singapore even before her independence, given its extensive impact on the general population. Various employment legislation enacted since the founding of Singapore sought to deal with pertinent issues of the time, be it the influx of immigrants in the 19th century, the industrial unrests in the 1950s, or the economic restructuring in the 1980s. Employment Law in Singapore – Cases and Materials consolidates and traces the development of the various legislation which regulate employment practices in Singapore (including the Employment Act, the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act, the Employment Agencies Act, the Work Injury Compensation Act, the Workplace Safety and Health Act and the Foreign Employee Dormitories Act 2015) which as a whole seeks to strike a delicate balance between the competing needs of the various stakeholders such as workers, employers, employment agencies, insurers, and the general public. Cases featured in this book include not only those pertaining to employment offences, but also administrative infringements and work injury compensation. It will serve as a useful handbook to practitioners and persons interested in the regulatory aspect of employment law in Singapore.

  6. Industrial Design Law in Singapore

    This book sets out a discussion of industrial design law in Singapore, beginning with a general introduction to industrial design, its importance to Singapore as one of the creative industries and its relation to intellectual property. It then proceeds to discuss, in some detail, the registered design system of Singapore which is followed by chapters setting out an overview of how copyright, passing off and trade mark law may also be relevant in protecting certain aspects of design. The problem caused by overlapping rights is also addressed. In addition, the text includes discussions of English, European and Australian laws for comparative and law reform purposes, and concludes by highlighting some areas where law reform might be considered.

  7. 	International Issues in Family Law In Singapore

    The “globalisation” of families has raised complex legal issues affecting family life, marriage and divorce. Yet there are relatively few local decisions in Singapore on the private international law aspects of family law. This book discusses conflict of laws rules applicable in family cases in Singapore and relevant local cases that offer guidance on the issues addressed. It also examines substantive law on family issues that have international features. Not quite a book on the conflict of laws nor the traditional topics in family law, its chapters uniquely select family law issues that have international dimensions. It includes discourse on substantive law and the conflicts rules in the formation of marriages, regulation of the marital relationship, matrimonial proceedings terminating marriages in globalised families, the ensuing financial consequences, and the laws on parental abduction and relocation of children across jurisdictions.

  8. Data Protection in the Practical Context - Strategies and Techniques

    Data Protection in the Practical Context – Strategies and Techniques provides a detailed study of the law, practice and policy of personal data protection law in Singapore. As the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) that was adopted in April 2016 included provisions implementing a formidable extended jurisdictional reach, this book also provides practical coverage of the GDPR and gives clarity to the key provisions. Including an extensive exposition on Big Data and the Internet of Things and their inter-relationship with cybersecurity, this book is an essential tool for anyone who has to deal with personal data protection matters, ranging from the practitioner, to the in-house counsel and all businesses.
