  1. Pioneer, Polymath, and Mentor - The Life and Legacy of Yong Pung How

    Please note that delivery of books will be made by the end of May 2024.

     

    The present book documents Dr Yong Pung How’s monumental contributions to Singapore in the fields of law as well as banking and finance. In particular, as Chief Justice, he transformed the Singapore judiciary and mentored the next generation of leaders in the legal profession. The Singapore legal system would not be what it is today without his leadership. Including contributions from 64 former Justices’ Law Clerks, Foreword by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Introduction by Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, and a full-colour picture section covering Dr Yong’s life from student at Cambridge University to Chancellor of the Singapore Management University, this important volume serves as a fitting commemoration for a true pioneer.

     

    General Editor Andrew Phang SJ is a former Judge of Appeal. He was also Gen Ed of The Law of Contract in Singapore, the second edition of which was published in 2022.
