The Syariah Court of Singapore hears and determines disputes on Muslim marriages, divorces, the ancillary matters thereto and betrothal as prescribed by the Administration of Muslim Law Act. Cases at first instance are heard by the Syariah Court. Appeals from decisions of the Syariah Court are heard by the Appeal Board. Each appeal is heard by a separately-constituted Appeal Board. Published by the Syariah Court, the Singapore Syariah Appeals Reports (SSAR) is the official report series of grounds of decisions delivered by the Appeal Board. Where the decision is delivered in Malay, the original Malay version of the Appeal Board decision is reported together with its English translation. Each report carries a catchword summary of the case highlighting the main issues decided; commentaries and updates in the form of “Notes” appear at the end of the report, where appropriate. Citations of Quranic verses referred to in a decision are listed in the case report. Volume 6 features the significant cases decided by the Appeal Board between 2011 and 2015. Where no grounds of decision were issued by the Appeal Board, the decision of the Syariah Court would be reported first, followed by the Order of the Appeal Board.

Law is one of the most jargon-filled and least-understood of disciplines, and among its sub-branches, constitutional law is considered one of the most difficult and arcane. Yet, the Constitution affects every one of us in ways we seldom contemplate. In this volume, the reader is quickly introduced to the basic concepts of constitutionalism, such as the separation of powers, the rule of law and the principle of judicial review. In twelve succinct chapters, this book covers the basic structure of government in Singapore as well as the fundamental liberties protected under the Constitution.
