Publisher: Singapore Academy of Law

This is the first textbook on Singapore contract law that is written for a local audience. It offers a comprehensive and structured discussion of all aspects of Singapore contract law. The book also draws, wherever applicable, on salient decisions from other Commonwealth jurisdictions (particularly with regard to areas of Singapore contract law that are not well-settled or which may benefit from comparative contract jurisprudence). In addition, the book contains references to relevant secondary literature as well as suggestions for reform, where applicable and necessary. 

Given its comprehensive treatment of Singapore contract law as well as its reference to a wide range of comparative material, this book will be useful not only to local practitioners and students but also to practitioners and students from other common law jurisdictions.

Highlights

- Written by eminent local scholars for a local audience
- Well-structured and most up-to-date text on Singapore contract law
- Though cut-off date is 1 January 2012, later court decisions have also been included (eg, Nitine Jantilal v BNP Paribas Wealth Management [2012] SGHC 28; OCBC Capital Investment Asia Ltd v Wong Hua Choon [2012] SGHC 25; Rainforest Trading Ltd v State Bank of India Singapore [2012] SGCA 21)
- Extensively referenced to latest editions of other works (eg, Burrows, A Casebook on Contract (3rd Ed, 2011); Carter, Carter’s Breach of Contract (3rd Ed, 2011); Cartwright, Misrepresentation, Mistake and Non-Disclosure (3rd Ed, 2012); Hunter, Modern Law of Contracts (2011); Lord, Williston on Contracts (4th Ed, 2011); McKendrick, Contract Law (9th Ed, 2011); Peel, Treitel on the Law of Contract (13th Ed, 2011))
- Wide range of comparative material from other jurisdictions to provide a well-rounded and comprehensive treatment of the subject matter
