SAL Annual Review of 2022 Cases on Family Law

It was an interesting year for the range of significant decisions in Family Law handed down by the courts. Our speakers will discuss the most notable cases in 2022, including cases on the enforcement of child orders, the characterisation of matrimonial assets and the judge-led approach both substantively and in case management. These cases show how therapeutic justice has taken root in our family justice system, and provide valuable insight on the prevailing trends in family law.

SAL Annual Review of 2022 Cases on Admiralty and Shipping

There have been several decisions from the Singapore Courts in 2022.  One of which is The Jeil Crystal [2022] SGCA 66 where the Court of Appeal considered whether a warrant of arrest may be upheld based on a cause of action that was not originally pleaded when the warrant of arrest was issued. 

The Singapore Courts also considered cases dealing with misdelivery claims under bills of lading in the course of 2022.

Mr Toh Kian Sing SC and Ms Vivian Ang, as authors of this chapter on Admiralty and Shipping in the SAL Annual Review will share their review on these cases. This will be followed by a discussion moderated by Mr Mohammad Haireez on the issues arising from these cases and the potential wider impact they may have on the invocation of the admiralty jurisdiction of the Singapore Courts and the adjudication of mis-delivery claims.
