Singapore Law Blog

Welcome to Singapore Law Blog!



Singapore Law Blog consists of a blog and a database of academic articles on Singapore law.

Singapore Law Blog

Singapore Law Blog is a blog dedicated to the discussion of the latest Singapore court decisions and legal news. It also routinely showcases practically relevant law journal articles and covers Continuing Legal Education events. Where relevant to the Singapore context, the blog also discusses legal developments in other parts of the world, particularly Commonwealth jurisdictions.

Contributions to the Singapore Law Blog

We welcome contributions of entries on the latest Singapore court decisions and legal news to Singapore Law Blog. Legal news can include discussions of recent legislative updates, developments in the legal sector or legal happenings in the broader community. Contributions should be about 2,000 words with no footnotes. Any references should be in-text. If you would like to contribute, please email the administrative team to discuss your proposed topic before proceeding so as to avoid any duplicated work. The administrative team can be reached at singaporelawblog@gmail.com and will respond to any proposal promptly.

If you are a lawyer regulated under the mandatory Continuing Professional Development (“CPD”) scheme administered by the Singapore Institute of Legal Education (“SILE”), you may wish to claim Private CPD Points for your contribution to the Singapore Law Blog. Before doing so, please ensure that your contribution satisfies the criteria set out at Rule 3(1)(c) of the CPD Rules 2012 read with Paragraphs 2-9 of the CPD Guidelines 2015.
