THE SINGAPORE LAW REPORTS
The Singapore Law Reports (“SLR”) embodies Singapore’s jurisprudence and is a pillar in the development of the law and the legal system in Singapore. As Singapore’s official law reports series, the SLR publishes legally-significant decisions of the Supreme Court of Singapore and the Constitutional Tribunal.
Cases are selected for reporting by a Selection Panel appointed by the Academy’s Council of Law Reporting. The Council of Law Reporting oversees the function of law reporting in Singapore. The Selection Panel, comprising senior members of the profession, selects judgments that meet the established criteria for reporting in the SLR.
Cases reported in the SLR are prefixed by headnotes prepared by Justices’ Law Clerks. Each headnote contains, inter alia, catchwords, summary of the facts, summary of the holding, list of case(s) referred to and list of legislation referred to.
