This book is a delightful synopsis of Singapore’s rich legal heritage. It highlights the development of Singapore’s legal system, the evolution of legal practice and the changes in court systems from tenuous beginnings to world-class status.
Legal Legacies provides a pictorial look at the key moments, places and people in Singapore’s legal history over 60 photographs, many of which are seen here for the first time, punctuated by interesting anecdotes.
Each book comes enclosed in a specially-designed envelope which is packaged with four loose postcards showing artworks and photographs of Singapore’s court houses over the years.
The fine finishing and artwork make this publication both a useful resource for history aficionados as well as a veritable keepsake.
This is a joint project by the Singapore Academy of Law Legal Heritage Committee, supported by the National Heritage Board
