Singapore Rules of Court – A Practice Guide (2023 Edition)

Editor-in-Chief: The Honourable Justice Chua Lee Ming

General Editor: Judge Paul Quan


A publication by Academy Publishing in collaboration with the Singapore Judicial College, Singapore Rules of Court: A Practice Guide offers incisive commentaries on the Rules of Court 2021 written by a select group of contributing authors. The commentaries offer valuable insight into and understanding of the thinking behind these rules, as most of the authors did work involving this revolutionary set of civil procedure rules before it came into effect on 1 April 2022. The editors, Justice Chua Lee Ming and Judge Paul Quan, provided guidance, lending their first-hand knowledge of and experience with the new rules in the Civil Justice Commission and subsequently in the Rules of Court Implementation Team. True to its form, Singapore Rules of Court: A Practice Guide features a quick reference format that, together with the succinct commentaries, makes it a handy court companion for the bench and practitioners. The legislation reproduced in this edition is up to date as of 29 November 2022.
