  1. Singapore Law - 50 Years in the Making (Print + Digital)

    The development of Singapore law has tracked the development of Singapore’s own nation-building efforts. Singapore’s laws reflect a diversity of legal and cultural heritages and there has been a conscious effort, particularly after the 1990s, to develop its own laws and legal institutions. These efforts have now paved the way for Singapore law to be promoted in international transactions and law reforms in other jurisdictions. This book assesses to what extent these ambitions have been achieved, how they are reflected in the jurisprudence of Singapore courts, and to predict the next phase in the development of Singapore law. It analyses all reported Singapore decisions since independence to December 2013. It considers the extent to which Singapore courts have developed a local jurisprudence and the particular subject areas in which such development is the strongest. It also examines the extent Singapore courts have relied on foreign law.

  2. Criminal Law for the 21st Century - A Model Code for Singapore (Print + Digital)

    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.

  3. Industrial Design Law in Singapore (Print + Digital)

    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. Coroner's Practice in Medical Cases (Print + Digital)

    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.

  5. Litigants in Person: Principles and Practice in Civil and Family Matters in Singapore (Print + Digital)

    The book identifies points of apparent disconnect between the assumed “ordinary” working of the legal system and the needs of LiPs. When litigants self-represent, there is an impact not only on the system in terms of efficiency, but also on all parties involved – the judges and the courts, the lawyers representing an opposing or other party, and the litigant himself. Within an adversarial system that presumes the existence of lawyers, any approach to manage heightened burdens when litigants self-represent must be multi-pronged, one that conceptualises the administration of justice as a legal ecosystem of interdependent actors.
