Tribunals play a critical role in the administration of justice. They complement the work of the courts by dealing with a variety of matters in specialised areas. This textbook is the first of its kind in Singapore. It concerns tribunals whose primary function is the determination of disputes: administrative tribunals, tribunals hearing civil claims and professional disciplinary tribunals. This book addresses the nature of tribunals, the legal principles governing tribunals, how tribunal hearings should be conducted, and how tribunals should be managed. It seeks to provide new tribunals with guidance as to the principles on which a tribunal should be set up and run, while providing established tribunals with standards they can aspire to.

Based on data collated concerning defamation cases decided by the Singapore courts from 1965 to 2015, this monograph assesses the trends in the courts’ use of foreign decisions and the diverse origins and nature of the foreign sources. In addition to the research methodology, it discusses the comparative law literature relating to such use of foreign precedents by judges and their contributions to the transnational judicial dialogue. Lawyers and judges may also be interested in the comparative analysis of the defamation laws of the selected foreign jurisdictions (England, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Malaysia and Hong Kong) as well as the specific legal issues (namely, defamatory meaning, reference to plaintiff and publication, the legal defences to defamation, the remedies and conflict of laws). This book not only reflects upon the past 50 years of legal evolution, but also looks ahead to the potential challenges and prospects for the development of the tort of defamation in Singapore.

The “globalisation” of families has raised complex legal issues affecting family life, marriage and divorce. Yet there are relatively few local decisions in Singapore on the private international law aspects of family law. This book discusses conflict of laws rules applicable in family cases in Singapore and relevant local cases that offer guidance on the issues addressed. It also examines substantive law on family issues that have international features. Not quite a book on the conflict of laws nor the traditional topics in family law, its chapters uniquely select family law issues that have international dimensions. It includes discourse on substantive law and the conflicts rules in the formation of marriages, regulation of the marital relationship, matrimonial proceedings terminating marriages in globalised families, the ensuing financial consequences, and the laws on parental abduction and relocation of children across jurisdictions.
