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.

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.

This book is a compendium of principal papers and commentary papers which were presented at the 15th Biennial Conference of Chief Justices of Asia and the Pacific which was held in Singapore. The focus of this Conference was on the search for ways to achieve the establishment of the core values of an effective judiciary, such as integrity, independence, transparency and securing access to justice, as well as the role of the Judiciary in supporting the growth of transnational commerce. These five core values became the tenets of this Conference upon which each session was based. Core Values of an Effective Judiciary pays tribute to the contributions of the speakers and is a record of the discussions and the diverse viewpoints and experiences that were shared on various judicial issues during the Conference.
