Description of Product

Following the enthusiastic reception of the first edition of Reading Law in Singapore, the editors of the second edition (Professor Tang Hang Wu of SMU School of Law, Professor Michael Hor of NUS Law and Nicholas Poon, Justices' Law Clerk of the Supreme Court) have assembled an illustrious team of contributors hailing from a diversity of backgrounds who, with their collective experiences and insights, have sketched out a wide-ranging preview of the many aspects of reading law in Singapore. In this internationalised world and increasingly competitive legal landscape, legal education in Singapore has evolved.

Attention is being paid, for example, to subjects such as family law, conflict of laws, mergers and acquisition, public international law and intellectual property law and legal ethics, all of which have been included as new chapters. More emphasis is also being given to the holistic development of skills-based courses. In addition, this edition introduces chapters on non-curricular aspects of legal education such as exchange programmes, pro bono work and mooting.

Written with potential students and laypersons seeking a 'first-cut' understanding of the law in mind, this book strives to provide readers with a good picture of what being a law student in Singapore generally entails. The second edition of Reading Law in Singapore promises to be an invaluable guide for those who are considering to immerse themselves in the study of law in Singapore.
