While the first volume covered a wide range of basic topics relating to advocacy from a uniquely Singapore perspective, this companion volume,
Modern Advocacy – More Perspectives from Singapore, seeks to cover specialist topics of interest to Singapore practitioners and includes new developments like the Singapore International Commercial Court and deeper coverage of advocacy before specialist tribunals and fora. The original editorial team is back to helm the project and each chapter has been authored by an acknowledged thought-leader in the area.

This book captures personal accounts by 15 legal personalities of their lives in the law in the decades leading up to 1959, when Singapore gained full internal self-governance. It draws on interviews by Singapore’s Oral History Centre with these change-makers who provide specific insight into our legal community and environment during those decades. Legal Tenor is not about hard-core history, but rather an attempt to extract and share some of the flavour of Singapore’s early legal years as told in the words of some of its earliest lawyers. Through a series of overlapping stories and perspectives, their tale is told with – for the most part – minimal intrusion, thus allowing readers to glean for themselves the tenor of the times.
