Amendments to the SOP Act

The SOP Amendment Act
A Commentary on the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment (Amendment) Act 2018

 

Since the passage of the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act (Cap 30B) or the SOP Act in 2004, the dispute resolution landscape in the construction industry has changed considerably. Each year between 400 and 500 adjudication applications are lodged and the statutory adjudication process is now the

principal dispute resolution route for construction payment claim disputes.

In 2018, Parliament passed the Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment (Amendment) Act 2018. The Amendment Act raises important changes to the operation of the statutory adjudication regime, including changes to the scope of contracts which comes under the Act and the provision for the claimant to now apply for a review of an adjudication determination. This work addresses a number of important issues arising from the amendments.

The authors are senior adjudicators and general editors of the Singapore Construction Adjudication Review, an established series of reports on adjudication determinations since 2005.
 
Legal Skills: A Complete Guide

The Definitive Guide on Legal Skills

 

  • Provides a user-friendly and practical step-by-step guide to the essentials of Singapore legal process, the tools available to excel and practical guidance on advocacy strategies.
  • Addresses the much-needed practice-ready skills gap for those transitioning from law school or foreign jurisdictions into the Singapore legal practice and is the first comprehensive guide written from the Singapore perspective.
  • Written in a clear and practical manner, Ms Sim Khadijah provides a unique perspective on what’s required to succeed in law early in your career from her background as Counsel, Assistant Registrar and Judge, with experience in private practice, public service and a skills trainer for NUS, SILE and SMC.

 

There exists a gap between what is taught in law schools and the skills that are actually needed in practice. Senior lawyers may not have the bandwidth to train and mentor their junior lawyers as much as they would prefer. As a result, these young lawyers are unable to maximise their true potential in the shortest time possible. This prompted the founding of the author’s legal skills training firm, Lacuna Training Solutions, the first of its kind, to fill the training gap.

Key features: Legal Research, Analysis, Written Advocacy, Oral Advocacy, ADR, General Skills in Legal Practice, and Additional Guidance for Law Students.

Journal of International and Comparative Law (JICL)

 

JICL promotes international legal research and scholarship encouraging new insights into law in context. In addition to articles by scholars and practitioners on “black letter law,” we welcome interdisciplinary contributions especially those that tangibly link such disciplines as social sciences, economics, international politics, media studies and other fields of research and academic debate that may be more empirically based but of major significance in influencing the focus and reform of law in its national and global contexts.

The June 2019 issue carries interesting and timely articles on diverse topics such as protection of human rights in post-Brexit UK, the Belt and Road initiative, consumer protection in cross border contracts for supply of consumer software in Australia and Philippines, “No Oral Modification” contractual clauses under New York and UK law, and, interpretation of investment treaties, contributed by scholars and practitioners from UK, USA, China, Australia and Philippines. December 2019 will be a special thematic issue on comparative legal studies.

Currently we are receiving submissions for publication in 2020. Submissions may be sent to Professor Anton Cooray at Anton.cooray.1@city.ac.uk to whom any inquiries may also be directed.
