Description of Product

Over the decades, the legal system in Singapore has evolved in a manner that draws from its Westminster heritage but also meets changing needs and aspirations. The 50th anniversary of the nation's independence in 2015 is an apt occasion to take stock of these developments. The chapters of this book can be grouped broadly under the headings 'Institutions', 'Principles' and & 'Practices'. It is the most up-to-date Singapore legal system book around, written with students in mind and those who require a quick grounding in the legal system in Singapore. Key Features - It covers the history of the legal system, fundamental constitutional concepts and the implications they have for the roles of the branches of government. - It gives a close examination on the institutions making up the legal system: the Executive, Legislature and Judiciary; the legal profession; and legal education in Singapore. - It includes practice-oriented chapters such as civil and criminal litigation, mediation and arbitration, and Singapore's relations with the international legal system. - It discusses the doctrine of judicial precedent, case method and analysis, and statutory interpretation.
