Since the publication of the first edition of Elements of Family Law in Singapore in 2007, there have been further developments in the law, both in statutory form as well as case law. This updated second edition follows the original, largely discussing, the developments and its impact on the state of the law currently. The author has striven to improve upon the discussion of the core principles in each topic in this edition.
The Court of Appeal leads the judiciary in its continuing effort to ensure that pristine common law principles are interpreted to serve local needs and circumstances as they should. The High Court has clarified the dominating role of the Women’s Charter in formation of marriages. The separate parts of the law regulating parents and their children are better rationalised to uphold the unique position of parents over other adults who may be interested in the well-being of someone else’s child. The Court of Appeal affirmed and clarified the law regulating marital agreements including pre-nuptial agreements. In the area of division of matrimonial assets, the Court of Appeal has delivered several significant decisions clarifying the law as based upon the concept of deferred community of property where equal credit should be accorded to nonfinancial contribution to acquisition as financial contribution, expounding the purposive interpretation of what properties are matrimonial assets and explaining its view of how to achieve the just and equitable proportions of division as mandated by the statutory provision.
Amongst significant statutory developments is the enactment of the International Child Abduction Act 2011 which enforces Singapore’s commitment in acceding to the Hague Convention on the Civil Aspects of International Child Abduction. New provisions for the better enforcement of orders of financial provision, whether of maintenance or division of matrimonial assets, after termination of marriages are also explained.
This is the first textbook on Singapore contract law that is written for a local audience. It offers a comprehensive and structured discussion of all aspects of Singapore contract law. The book also draws, wherever applicable, on a salient decisions from other Commonwealth jurisdictions (particularly with regard to areas of Singapore contract law that are not well-settled or which may benefit from comparative contract jurisprudence). In additional, the book contains reference to relevant secondary literature as well as suggestions for reform, where applicable and necessary.
Given its comprehensive treatment of Singapore contract as well as its reference to a wide range of comparative material, this book will be useful not only local practitioners and students but also to practitioners and students from other common law jurisdictions.
The book is interspersed with up-to-date case laws and legislation to enable students to apply what they have learnt. Each chapter closes with a chapter summary and exercises to help students reinforce their understanding of the topics. This edition includes new cases, new topics, new and revised questions, as well as an improved ordering of the topics.

Information Technology Law: The Law and Society is the ideal companion for a course of study on IT law and the ways in which it is evolving in response to rapid technological and social change.
This ground-breaking work is the first textbook to systematically examine how the law and legal process of the UK interacts with the modern ‘information society’ and the fast-moving process of digitization. It examines the challenges that this fast pace of change brings to the established legal order, which was developed to meet the needs of a traditional physical society.
To address these issues, this book begins by defining the information society and discussing how it may be regulated. From there it moves to questions of Internet governance and rights and responsibilities in the digital environment.
Particular attention is paid to key regulatory ‘pressure points’, including:
DT copyright for digital products
DT identity fraud
DT electronic commerce
DT privacy and surveillance
Possible future challenges and opportunities are outlined and discussed, including e-government, virtual environments and property, and the development of web 3.0. Information Technology Law: The law and society covers all aspects of a course of study on IT law, and is therefore an ideal text for students. The author’s highly original and thought-provoking approach to the subject also makes it essential reading for researchers, IT professionals, and policymakers.
This new edition will include expanded coverage of defamation & privacy as well as substantial revisions to Part II on the governance of the information society.
