  1. Legal Profession ( Professional Conduct) Rules 2015

    Purchase Second Edition here

     

    This work is the first comprehensive, annotative commentary ever written on the rules of ethics in Singapore. Singapore and foreign practitioners, judges, Disciplinary Tribunal members and students will find this commentary particularly helpful because of its incisive approach towards the elements of each rule of the new Legal Profession (Professional Conduct) Rules 2015 (“PCR”). By reading this book, members of the public would gain a full understanding of the responsibilities of lawyers towards clients. The Legal Profession (Foreign Representation in Singapore International Commercial Court) Rules 2014, which governs the conduct of foreign lawyers in the Singapore International Commercial Court, is analysed as well. The relationship between principles and rules (a fundamental feature of the PCR) is closely examined and the scope of their application is carefully elucidated. The book explains every rule of ethics and covers all the relevant case law and disciplinary decisions which concern ethical accountability. It addresses related legislation, the governing practice directions, rulings, guidance notes and circulars which affect a lawyer’s practice as well as judgments from other jurisdictions. As the PCR breaks new ground structurally, in content and applicability, this book will prove to be an invaluable and indispensable aid to the understanding of the unprecedented dynamics of professional conduct in modern legal practice.

  2. Principles of Civil Procedure  (softcover edition)

    This book examines the rules of civil procedure and the ever-increasing case law in the context of carefully designed, underlying principles. This is a unique approach and its purpose is to inculcate a fuller and deeper understanding of procedure. Principles of Civil Procedure will enable the reader to gain a fundamental understanding of the elements of civil procedure in a very meaningful way at every level. It will assist lawyers in mastering difficult issues of procedure and present them with persuasive points which they can use in their arguments in almost every area. Civil procedure is not merely a body of rules. Rules are the mere facets of the subject. A true understanding of civil procedure comes only with an appreciation of the purposes of the rules and their link to the objectives of litigation.

  3. Modern Advocacy - Perspectives from Singapore

    Modern Advocacy is a book on trial advocacy written by Singapore practitioners for Singapore practitioners. The book is an illuminating insight into what Singapore advocates do and how they go about doing it. It is a singularly unique piece of work, not only for making inroads into the market (which until now survived on general primers from other jurisdictions) by providing a locally-flavoured book on advocacy, but also for its stellar list of contributors and General Editors. No less than 17 Senior Counsel, a retired Judge of Appeal, two High Court Judges, and a former best oralist (championship round) winner of the Philip C Jessup International Law Moot Court Competition collaborated to bring this publication to fruition.

  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. 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.

  9. Corporate Law


    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.

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

    Look out for our second edition coming out soon !

     

    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.
