  1. Contract Law in Singapore : Cases, Materials & Commentary

    Look out for our second edition coming out soon !

     

    This is the first contract law casebook which compiles extracts from the judgements of the Singapore courts, as well as excerpts from relevant Singapore statutes. It is designed to facilitate the teaching and learning of Singapore contract law by providing the reader with a systematic framework for understanding the core legal principles underpinning the different doctrinal facets of this subject. Every chapter provides an introductory overview of a key topic, including the formation of contracts, the interpretation of contracts and the discharge of contracts, to assist the reader in navigating a curated collection of case extracts from some of the most significant contract law cases that have emerged from the Singapore High Court and the Singapore Court of Appeal. Users of this book are invited to read the selection of materials critically in light of the accompanying commentary provided in each chapter, reflect on the “grey” areas of the law that have attracted controversy and consider the extent to which Singapore contract law is similar to, or different from, the position taken elsewhere.

  2. [Conference + Book] Sentencing Conference 2022: Sentencing Frameworks – Quick Reference Guide and Roadmap

    The courts play a key institutional role in sentencing offenders. While sentencing is a highly fact-based exercise, sentencing frameworks play an important role in securing principled and consistent outcomes in discrete cases. Such frameworks also aim to be instructive (without being prescriptive) and communicative. The use of artificial intelligence as a tool in sentencing and the extent to which AI can interact with the exercise of judicial discretion is an emerging area that merits further consideration. These matters form the focus of the Sentencing Conference 2022, as do the perennial issues of sentencing considerations and options peculiar to special classes of offenders such as youths and those afflicted with mental health issues. Participants can look forward to hearing from an array of eminent speakers and presenters from the bench, the bar, academia, and various specialist agencies who will share their views on all of these aspects.
