  1. A Treatise on Singapore Constitutional Law

    A Treatise on Singapore Constitutional Law explores how constitutional law operates within the context of a non-liberal, secular constitutional democracy, within a religiously and racially diverse social setting. This treatise is concerned with both theory and doctrine, with explaining the black letter rules of constitutional practice and their underlying rationales, as well as critically examining how they work in practice. It seeks to draw out the broader significance of legal rules by identifying their underlying legal philosophy and engages the normative, conceptual and empirical dimensions of constitutional law, to present a thorough study of the law in Singapore. This book addresses both what the state of the law “is”, and evaluates this against what it “ought” to be or to aspire towards.

  3. Principles of the Law of Restitution in Singapore

    The law of restitution is a major branch of private law which is not well understood. This is the first book dedicated to the law of restitution in Singapore providing an analysis of the principles of the law of restitution with reference to two distinct parts, namely, unjust enrichment and restitution for wrongs. The prevention of unjust enrichment as an independent legal principle, capable of founding causes of action, gained currency as an independent branch of the common law in Singapore only in the 1990s. This book introduces readers to the central concepts and controversies in the law of restitution, focusing on unjust enrichment and restitution for wrongs as organising themes. Leading decisions in Singapore and other Commonwealth jurisdictions are used to explain the fundamental concepts in the law of restitution.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.
