The law of legal professional privilege is of immense importance to clients, in-house counsel and external lawyers. This is the first publication which undertakes a critical evaluation of existing rules of legal professional privilege both in Singapore and across Commonwealth jurisdictions. It draws on applicable legislation, case law and academic commentary, and seeks to provide the reader with a sound doctrinal and analytical framework with which to approach the different aspects of this subject, as well as practical advice on how to assert and defend claims of privilege.

This is the first contract law casebook which compiles extracts from the judgements of the Singapore courts, as well as excerpts from relevant Singapore statutes. It is designed to facilitate the teaching and learning of Singapore contract law by providing the reader with a systematic framework for understanding the core legal principles underpinning the different doctrinal facets of this subject. Every chapter provides an introductory overview of a key topic, including the formation of contracts, the interpretation of contracts and the discharge of contracts, to assist the reader in navigating a curated collection of case extracts from some of the most significant contract law cases that have emerged from the Singapore High Court and the Singapore Court of Appeal. Users of this book are invited to read the selection of materials critically in light of the accompanying commentary provided in each chapter, reflect on the “grey” areas of the law that have attracted controversy and consider the extent to which Singapore contract law is similar to, or different from, the position taken elsewhere.
