The Singapore Practitioners' Guide on Damages Paid for Defamation Cases (the "Guide") is a comprehensive reference on the whole range of defamation cases that come before Singapore courts, as well as the range of damages awarded for such claims. It includes case summaries for over a decade of reported and unreported defamation cases filed between 2006 and 2017, as well as a useful and concise tabulation of defamation cases organised by nature of defamation, claimant category, amount awarded, and appeal outcome, as well as case summaries for over a decade of reported and unreported cases filed between 2006 and 2017. The Guide summarises the broad legal concepts governing the tort of defamation in Singapore, making it an excellent introduction for anybody interested in the subject.

It also includes a relevant reference to the Pre-Action Protocol for Defamation Actions in State Courts, which went into force on September 24, 2018. The Protocol intends to promote constructive conversations in order to promote pre-action settlements and keep parties focused on the most important topics in dispute. The Guide examines the legal environment as it has evolved to date, including recent defamation cases that were previously unavailable in other local publications on the tort of defamation.
