The Law of Contract in Singapore

BUY IT SGD160.50

This is the first textbook on Singapore contract law that is written for a local audience. It offers a comprehensive and structured discussion of all aspects of Singapore contract law. The book also draws, wherever applicable, on salient decisions from other Commonwealth jurisdictions (particularly with regard to areas of Singapore contract law that are not well-settled or which may benefit from comparative contract jurisprudence). In addition, the book contains references to relevant secondary literature as well as suggestions for reform, where applicable and necessary.

Given its comprehensive treatment of Singapore contract law as well as its reference to a wide range of comparative material, this book will be useful not only to local practitioners and students but also to practitioners and students from other common law jurisdictions.

Highlights

  • Written by eminent local scholars for a local audience
