Modern Advocacy - More Perspectives from Singapore

BUY IT SGD$96.30

 Modern Advocacy – Perspectives from Singapore was released in 2008 and immediately gained itself a place on many a bookshelf. It was written by a “constellation” of eminent legal luminaries (in the words of then Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong). It contained guidance and advice to enhance the practice of all young advocates (and perhaps a few experienced ones too). It also covered impressively broad ground, touching generally on almost every aspect of litigation in Singapore.


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.

With a set of new “stars” to headline the project and a whole new plotline, so to speak, Modern Advocacy – More Perspectives from Singapore is not a reboot or sequel but a companion piece that the general editors and contributors think well deserves that slot right next to its predecessor.
