  1. Juvenile Justice – Where Rehabilitation Takes Centre Stage

    This edition is currently not in print. 

    Our new edition: Youth Justice in Singapore has been released, and it is available for purchase here.

     

    The guiding philosophy of the juvenile justice system is that the rehabilitation of the juvenile offender is the best way to prevent him from re-offending. The task of rehabilitation involves re-integrating the juvenile offender with his family and the community. It requires him to take responsibility both for his wrongdoing and his future. This is an effort involving many parties, not least the juvenile offender himself. This book explores the roles played by the various parties in the rehabilitation of the juvenile offender, including probation officers, social workers, institutional staff, his school, parents, extended family, and so on. It also covers the legal principles, case law, procedures and processes in the arena of juvenile crime, and shows how the juvenile justice system is designed to advance and promote the rehabilitation philosophy.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 	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.

  5. 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.

  7. Coroner's Practice in Medical Cases

    The work of the coroner, even within the legal and medical professions, is not often well understood. Though the law on negligence relating to medical cases is well established, little or none has been written on the coroner’s practice in medical cases. Currently, there is little guidance available in Singapore for lawyers, doctors and other professionals who may become involved in the investigation of deaths where issues of medical mismanagement are raised. It is hoped that the publication of this book will fill the gap.

  8. Contract Law in Singapore : Cases, Materials & Commentary

    This is the first contract law casebook which compiles extracts from the judgements of the Singapore courts, as well as excerpts from relevant Singapore statutes. It is designed to facilitate the teaching and learning of Singapore contract law by providing the reader with a systematic framework for understanding the core legal principles underpinning the different doctrinal facets of this subject. Every chapter provides an introductory overview of a key topic, including the formation of contracts, the interpretation of contracts and the discharge of contracts, to assist the reader in navigating a curated collection of case extracts from some of the most significant contract law cases that have emerged from the Singapore High Court and the Singapore Court of Appeal. Users of this book are invited to read the selection of materials critically in light of the accompanying commentary provided in each chapter, reflect on the “grey” areas of the law that have attracted controversy and consider the extent to which Singapore contract law is similar to, or different from, the position taken elsewhere.

  9. Criminal Law for the 21st Century - A Model Code for Singapore

    In this book, the authors propose a set of improved and modernised provisions expressing the general principles of criminal responsibility. This set of principles will comprise a “General Part” which, it is proposed, will form part of Singapore’s Penal Code. The key objective of devising and enacting the General Part is to significantly revitalise the Penal Code and restore many of its original technical attributes. Each chapter of this book comprises: (a) a carefully considered and drafted provision on a general principle of criminal responsibility; (b) a summary of the existing law in Singapore pertaining to that principle; (c) a selection of recent formulations of that principle from other jurisdictions to benchmark Singapore’s law (both current and proposed) with international best practices; and (d) a comparison of these formulations with the provision proposed in this book for inclusion as a General Part in Singapore’s Penal Code.
