  1. Rule of Law Symposium 2014

    This book is the result of the Rule of Law Symposium that was convened in Singapore in May 2014 to consider the implications of the rule of law for development both in the South-East Asia region and globally. The chapters in this book represent a conversation between senior judges, scholars and lawyers from the worlds of business and private practice. There are four thematic sections, which address: the rule of law and development from a legal and policy perspective; the implications of the rule of law for business and finance; the rule of law in international investment disputes; and judicial reflections from the past or present heads of the Judiciary in England and Wales, Hong Kong and Singapore. The thematic sections are followed by individual contributions from former UN Legal Counsel, Ambassador Patricia O’Brien; Singapore’s Minister for Law and Foreign Affairs, Mr K Shanmugam, and The Honourable Solicitor-General Lionel Yee.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Law of Sales in Singapore

    Limited copies available for purchase.

     

    Trade is a keystone of the Singapore economy, and sales of goods comprise a substantial portion of that trade. Agreements for the sale and purchase of goods are subject to one of two statutes in Singapore. Domestic sales and all consumer sales are governed by the Sale of Goods Act (“SOGA”). International sales between commercial parties, with some exceptions, are subject to the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (“CISG”) so long as both the buyer and seller are from contracting member states of the CISG. Singapore acceded to the CISG in 1996 and the CISG has been domesticated as a statute of Singapore. This short volume is intended to be a handy guide to sales law and to the ways in which the treatment of contracts of sale differ from the common law, whether under SOGA or the CISG. There are some important differences between SOGA and the CISG, and one of the purposes of this book is to provide guidance to lawyers and their clients on whether to “opt out” of the coverage of the CISG (which is easy to do if done properly) in favour of the application of SOGA or the domestic sales law of another country. Particular attention is paid to areas where there are striking differences between the CISG and SOGA or the common law, such as the introduction of parol evidence, the use of foreign precedents and the role of good faith.

  6. 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.

  7. Litigants in Person: Principles and Practice in Civil and Family Matters in Singapore

    The book identifies points of apparent disconnect between the assumed “ordinary” working of the legal system and the needs of LiPs. When litigants self-represent, there is an impact not only on the system in terms of efficiency, but also on all parties involved – the judges and the courts, the lawyers representing an opposing or other party, and the litigant himself. Within an adversarial system that presumes the existence of lawyers, any approach to manage heightened burdens when litigants self-represent must be multi-pronged, one that conceptualises the administration of justice as a legal ecosystem of interdependent actors

  8. Juvenile Justice – Where Rehabilitation Takes Centre Stage

    Look out for our new edition, coming out first quarter of 2023

     

    The guiding philosophy of the juvenile justice system is that the rehabilitation of the juvenile offender is the best way to prevent him from re-offending. The task of rehabilitation involves re-integrating the juvenile offender with his family and the community. It requires him to take responsibility both for his wrongdoing and his future. This is an effort involving many parties, not least the juvenile offender himself. This book explores the roles played by the various parties in the rehabilitation of the juvenile offender, including probation officers, social workers, institutional staff, his school, parents, extended family, and so on. It also covers the legal principles, case law, procedures and processes in the arena of juvenile crime, and shows how the juvenile justice system is designed to advance and promote the rehabilitation philosophy.
