Publisher Singapore Academy of Law


While the first volume covered a wide range of basic advocacy topics from a uniquely Singapore perspective, this companion volume, Modern Advocacy – More Perspectives from Singapore, focuses on specialist topics of interest to Singapore practitioners, including new developments such as the Singapore International Commercial Court and expanded coverage of advocacy before specialist tribunals and fora.

The project's original editorial team has returned to lead it, and each chapter has been written by a recognised thought leader in the field.

In essence, Modern Advocacy is a look into the minds of Singapore’s legal eagles; an opportunity for aspiring advocates to learn the ropes of the trade from those who have succeeded; an eye-opener for those who wish to learn more about Singapore’s trial procedure; and an engaging read for others to end the day with.
