The Syariah Court of Singapore hears and determines disputes on Muslim marriages, divorces, the ancillary matters thereto and betrothal as prescribed by the Administration of Muslim Law Act. Cases at first instance are heard by the Syariah Court. Appeals from decisions of the Syariah Court are heard by the Appeal Board. Each appeal is heard by a separately-constituted Appeal Board. Published by the Syariah Court, the Singapore Syariah Appeals Reports (SSAR) is the official report series of grounds of decisions delivered by the Appeal Board. Where the decision is delivered in Malay, the original Malay version of the Appeal Board decision is reported together with its English translation. Each report carries a catchword summary of the case highlighting the main issues decided; commentaries and updates in the form of “Notes” appear at the end of the report, where appropriate. Citations of Quranic verses referred to in a decision are listed in the case report. Volume 6 features the significant cases decided by the Appeal Board between 2011 and 2015. Where no grounds of decision were issued by the Appeal Board, the decision of the Syariah Court would be reported first, followed by the Order of the Appeal Board.

Arbitration has over recent years become the preferred mode of dispute resolution among parties entering into cross-border transactions, providing a flexible and efficient mechanism for the resolution of disputes between parties from different legal and cultural backgrounds. As Singapore continues to grow and position itself as a centre for dispute resolution, not only locally and regionally, but also internationally as a centre of arbitration and mediation excellence, arbitration has thus become one of the fastest growing areas of law in this country.
Arbitration in Singapore: A Practical Guide is a comprehensive how-to text guide written by the practitioners for practitioners. The book discusses the role of the Singapore court during and after arbitration, providing guidance on when the court can intervene in proceedings, enforce, and entertain a challenge to an award. Each stage of arbitration is explained clearly, from the appointment of the tribunal and its powers, to the relief and remedies it may award. It covers the key features of arbitration agreements and examines the subject through expert commentary and analysis.

The Global Technology Law Conference 2015, held over two days on 29 and 30 June 2015, is the second in a series of international conferences delving into the issues thrown up by the collision of law and disruptive technologies. The conference grappled with legal and regulatory issues in the wake of financial technologies, or Fintech, and the challenges to data protection and intellectual property law associated with big data. This book collects a series of articles that deal with these topics in much greater depth. The views articulated at the conference form the bedrock of these articles. It is hoped that the ideas and views captured between these covers will contribute to the development of jurisprudence in this exciting and everchanging area of law.
