Recent changes in mediation include the passing of the mediation bill in 2017; amendments to the Supreme Court practice directions on the provisions for Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) for civil cases; and the reallocation of cases by the Family Justice Courts to Mediation. In light of these changes, the 2nd edition of Mediation in Singapore provides much-needed practical advice and guidance to practitioners through theoretical discussions on meditation and its application to real-life case studies.

This journal serves as a report on cases which are considered to be relevant to the practice of construction law and a forum for analysis and discourse on subjects of contemporary interest in this area of law. While the presentation of the reports and editorial materials in each issue will be familiar to construction lawyers and specialist advisers, several features have been introduced to ensure that the contents are easily accessed by contract administrators, architects, quantity surveyors and engineers who have to deal with construction contracts. For this reason each reported case is fronted by a case digest pointing out the salient aspects of the decision as well as its practical implications. Similarly the articles and commentaries are published on the basis of topicality and the significance of the subjects for practitioners at large.
