Contract Law in Singapore : Cases,Materials and Commentary
BUY IT SGD$128.40
This is the first contract law casebook
which compiles extracts from the judgements of the Singapore courts, as well as
excerpts from relevant Singapore statutes. It is designed to facilitate the
teaching and learning of Singapore contract law by providing the reader with a
systematic framework for understanding the core legal principles underpinning
the different doctrinal facets of this subject.
Every chapter provides an
introductory overview of a key topic, including the formation of contracts, the
interpretation of contracts and the discharge of contracts, to assist the
reader in navigating a curated collection of case extracts from some of the
most significant contract law cases that have emerged from the Singapore High
Court and the Singapore Court of Appeal. Users of this book are invited to read
the selection of materials critically in light of the accompanying commentary
provided in each chapter, reflect on the “grey” areas of the law that have
attracted controversy and consider the extent to which Singapore contract law is
similar to, or different from, the position taken elsewhere.
