Up to now, Halsbury's Laws of England has been widely accepted by Singapore lawyers as a useful starting point for their legal research. However, with the development of a strong, self-reliant local jurisprudence, it has become evident that Singapore requires a parallel work dedicated specifically to Singapore law and its interpretation. Consequently, this year Butterworth Asia will commence publishing the most extensive and definitive reference ever available for Singapore lawyers - Halsbury's Laws of Singapore.
Written specifically for the legal profession in Singapore by a panel of distinguished local practioneers and academics, Halsbury's Laws of Singapore provides a narrative statement covering all core areas of law and practice.
Halsbury's Laws of Singapore has commenced publishing in January 1999 with two core titles: Arbitration (written by Mr Lawrence Boo) and Building and Construction (written by George Tan and Mr Philip Chan).
