  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Law of Sales in Singapore (Print + Digital)

    Limited copies available for purchase.

     

    Trade is a keystone of the Singapore economy, and sales of goods comprise a substantial portion of that trade. Agreements for the sale and purchase of goods are subject to one of two statutes in Singapore. Domestic sales and all consumer sales are governed by the Sale of Goods Act (“SOGA”). International sales between commercial parties, with some exceptions, are subject to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (“CISG”) so long as both the buyer and seller are from contracting member states of the CISG. Singapore acceded to the CISG in 1996 and the CISG has been domesticated as a statute of Singapore. This short volume is intended to be a handy guide to sales law and to the ways in which the treatment of contracts of sale differ from the common law, whether under SOGA or the CISG. There are some important differences between SOGA and the CISG, and one of the purposes of this book is to provide guidance to lawyers and their clients on whether to “opt out” of the coverage of the CISG (which is easy to do if done properly) in favour of the application of SOGA or the domestic sales law of another country. Particular attention is paid to areas where there are striking differences between the CISG and SOGA or the common law, such as the introduction of parol evidence, the use of foreign precedents and the role of good faith.

  5. Juvenile Justice – Where Rehabilitation Takes Centre Stage

    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.
