Mr Paul McGrath Q.C. of Essex Court Chambers will give a talk outlining the modern approach in Singapore law to res judicata in the light of the recent Court of Appeal decision in RBS v TT International Ltd  SGCA 50 and, in the context of consent judgments, that of the High Court in Cost Engineers (SEA) Pte Ltd v Chan Siew Lun  SGHC 262. He will examine the differing categories of res judicata and the criteria which applies to each category and consider whether a narrow strict approach to applying exceptions to the doctrine (as illustrated by RBS) is preferable to the wider more flexible and discretionary approach favoured in some of the English authorities.
