  1. The Law of Torts in Singapore (2nd Ed)

    Tort law has continued to develop apace in the intervening period since the first edition of the book was published in 2011: new torts have emerged, existing torts re-formulated, and important clarifications made on the scope of specific torts and doctrines. These developments are captured in this second edition, salient examples of which include See Toh Siew Kee v Ho Ah Lam Ferrocement (Pte) Ltd (occupiers’ liability); Anwar Patrick Adrian v Ng Chong & Hue LLC and AEL v Cheo Yeoh & Associates LLC (solicitor’s duty of care); EFT Holding, Inc v Marinteknik Shipbuilders (S) Pte Ltd (unlawful means conspiracy); and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (Publ), Singapore Branch v Asia Pacific Breweries (Singapore) Pte Ltd (vicarious liability). The scope and impact of new statutory torts introduced pursuant to the Protection from Harassment Act and Community Disputes Resolution Act 2015 are also examined. As with the previous edition, a comparative view is offered by considering, where relevant, new developments in other leading Commonwealth jurisdictions.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Environmental Law in Singapore

    In a world of rapidly worsening environmental conditions, and amidst a growing urgent interest in best practices for addressing the crisis, Singapore is often lauded for its exemplary approach to environmental management, and its environmental law is sometimes credited for this achievement. However, while Singapore’s environmental laws have contributed to progress towards sustainable development, there is room for improvement. Environmental Law in Singapore is the first and only textbook on Singapore environmental law. It is an essential reference written for legal practitioners in and outside Singapore; researchers and students; as well as businesses, civil society and policy makers who want to gain a more comprehensive and detailed understanding of the subject. The book explains the subject in the context of international and regional environmental law and the Singapore legal system. It describes, explains and critiques the applicable legal principles, legislative provisions and cases. Topics covered go beyond the traditional areas of criminal and civil liabilities in environmental regulation such as pollution control, waste management, nature conservation and climate change, to also include environmental governance issues such as procedural and substantive environmental rights. This book also considers developments in other jurisdictions where appropriate, for insights into potential areas for legislative or judicial reform.

  9. The Criminal Procedure Code of Singapore – Annotations and Commentary

    Authored and edited by a team of prosecutors under the guidance of the former Chief Prosecutor of the Criminal Justice Division (who is now the Deputy Chief District Judge of the Subordinate Courts), this book attempts to provide an insight into the raison d’être of each of the provisions in the Criminal Procedure Code 2010. It also discusses some of the jurisprudence surrounding predecessors of the provisions (where applicable) and how they might serve to form the contours of some of the provisions of the new Code. This book serves as a useful guide to all who are involved in the administration of criminal justice in Singapore, as well as academics and students of criminal law.

  10. Competition Law and Policy in Singapore (2nd Edition)

    Since the first edition was published, the Singapore competition law regime has developed considerably. New enforcement decisions have created a small but growing depository of local cases which will continue to shape the development and practice of competition law in Singapore. This book provides a comprehensive guide to how competition laws in Singapore will be implemented, and how businesses, practitioners and students should navigate the regime. This second edition explores the lessons from the infringement decisions issued by the Competition Commission of Singapore, many of which take into account Singapore’s unique circumstances.

  11. Corporate Law

    The next edition of this title will be out in August 2024. To receive updates, please submit this form.


    This textbook incorporates all the changes introduced by the Companies (Amendment) Act 2014, which made the largest series of amendments to the Companies Act since it was enacted in 1967. The first set of amendments came into effect in July 2015, and encompassed changes in areas including: expanding the scope of the statutory derivative action to allow a complainant even in a listed company to apply to court for leave to intervene in proceedings, which now also includes arbitration; relaxing further the capital maintenance rules generally, in particular, by removing the prohibition against financial assistance by private companies; and the introduction of a small company audit exemption. The remaining changes, with effect from 2016, include: provisions pertaining to directors (and now chief executive officers in some cases) and their qualification; removing restrictions caused by various definitions in the Companies Act of “equity share” and “preference share”, such as the one-share-one-vote requirement for public companies; and the increasing recognition of the use of the electronic medium in the context of the company.
