  1. Law on Carriage of Goods By Sea - 3rd Edition Digital

    After the second edition of this book was published in 1994, the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act was amended to give the Hague-Visby Rules the “force of law”. This brought the Singapore position on the effect of these Rules in line with UK law. Furthermore, the effect of the provisions of the Bills of Lading Act (“BLA”), and the corresponding UK statute, namely, the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act 1992, has been explained in many cases in Singapore and the UK. Since the last edition, other aspects of the law on carriage of goods by sea have also been clarified and there have been many important judicial pronouncements on the effect of the Hague Rules and the Hague-Visby Rules.

  2. Sentencing Principles in Singapore - 2nd Edition Digital

    The second edition provides a comprehensive update on numerous developments that have taken place in Singapore’s sentencing jurisprudence since the publication of the first edition in 2009. Through in-depth commentaries and a new chapter on Community Sentences, the second edition covers developments in Singapore’s sentencing jurisprudence up to January 2019. Since the publication of the first edition, several key pieces of sentencing-related legislation (including the Criminal Procedure Code, the Penal Code and the Prisons Act) underwent many major amendments; and more than 700 judgments on sentencing were issued by the Court of Appeal and High Court (including about 150 sentencing guideline judgments).

  3. The Law of Torts in Singapore (2nd Ed) (Print + Digital)

    Tort law has continued to develop apace in the intervening period since the first edition of the book was published in 2011: new torts have emerged, existing torts re-formulated, and important clarifications made on the scope of specific torts and doctrines. These developments are captured in this second edition, salient examples of which include See Toh Siew Kee v Ho Ah Lam Ferrocement (Pte) Ltd (occupiers’ liability); Anwar Patrick Adrian v Ng Chong & Hue LLC and AEL v Cheo Yeoh & Associates LLC (solicitor’s duty of care); EFT Holding, Inc v Marinteknik Shipbuilders (S) Pte Ltd (unlawful means conspiracy); and Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB (Publ), Singapore Branch v Asia Pacific Breweries (Singapore) Pte Ltd (vicarious liability). The scope and impact of new statutory torts introduced pursuant to the Protection from Harassment Act and Community Disputes Resolution Act 2015 are also examined. As with the previous edition, a comparative view is offered by considering, where relevant, new developments in other leading Commonwealth jurisdictions.

  4. Corporate Law (Print + Digital)

    This textbook incorporates all the changes introduced by the Companies (Amendment) Act 2014, which made the largest series of amendments to the Companies Act since it was enacted in 1967. The first set of amendments came into effect in July 2015, and encompassed changes in areas including: expanding the scope of the statutory derivative action to allow a complainant even in a listed company to apply to court for leave to intervene in proceedings, which now also includes arbitration; relaxing further the capital maintenance rules generally, in particular, by removing the prohibition against financial assistance by private companies; and the introduction of a small company audit exemption. The remaining changes, with effect from 2016, include: provisions pertaining to directors (and now chief executive officers in some cases) and their qualification; removing restrictions caused by various definitions in the Companies Act of “equity share” and “preference share”, such as the one-share-one-vote requirement for public companies; and the increasing recognition of the use of the electronic medium in the context of the company.
