  1. Law & Practice of Tribunals in Singapore

    Tribunals play a critical role in the administration of justice. They complement the work of the courts by dealing with a variety of matters in specialised areas. This textbook is the first of its kind in Singapore. It concerns tribunals whose primary function is the determination of disputes: administrative tribunals, tribunals hearing civil claims and professional disciplinary tribunals. This book addresses the nature of tribunals, the legal principles governing tribunals, how tribunal hearings should be conducted, and how tribunals should be managed. It seeks to provide new tribunals with guidance as to the principles on which a tribunal should be set up and run, while providing established tribunals with standards they can aspire to.

  2. Singapore Law - 50 Years in the Making

    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.

  3. 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.

    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.

  6. Coroner's Practice in Medical Cases 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.
