Legal Tenor: Voices from Singapore's Legal History (1930-1959) (print)

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.
