Professor Geoffrey Bartholomew (1927-2005) taught law in Singapore for only 13 years but he spent a life-time studying Singapore’s legal system and history. His profound knowledge of Singapore’s legal system and its history is recognised in this volume of 16 essays published in his memory.
Historical and contemporary aspects of Singapore Law, the role of legal personalities, the interplay of legal and other issues in the country's development are among the subjects explored in this collection of accessibly written dissertations.
Anyone who wishes to understand the workings of Singapore’s legal system and legal history will inevitably encounter the name of Bartholomew at some point. This book provides valuable insight to the man and Singapore’s legal history.
