Course Description Advanced Contract Law invites students to examine some interesting and controversial topics from this foundational subject. Some topics will build on what students already know in their first-year/basic contract law course (e.g. how does contract law deal with change of circumstances?), some will cover new ground (e.g. the role of good faith in contract law). You will be able to write a paper on a topic of particular interest to you. The course also complements the module Advanced Tort Law and Philosophical Foundations of Contract Law. Cautionary note for students from Civil Law Jurisdiction: a background knowledge of common law subjects is assumed, including contract, tort, equity, and company law.

Course Description This course explores principles and rules relating to the exploration for, development and production of oil and gas (often described as "upstream oil and gas operations"). After an introduction to the geopolitics of oil and the history surrounding the oil and gas industry, the course commences with an examination of different arrangements governing the legal relationship between the petroleum producing states and international oil companies (IOCs). It then moves on to consider various commercial agreements governing the relationships between IOCs involved in upstream petroleum operations (such as joint operating and unitisation agreements) and the liability/risk allocation provisions commonly found in oilfield service contracts. It will conclude by examining key areas of regulatory law, notably the decommissioning of offshore installations. The course is international and comparative in its focus, drawing on the experience of many jurisdictions and legal systems at different points in time.

Course Description This course is intended to introduce students to the practice and law relating to international projects and infrastructure. The various methods of procurement and the construction process involved will be reviewed in conjunction with standard forms that are used internationally - such as the FIDIC, JCT and NEC forms, among others. Familiar issues such as defects, time and cost overruns and the implications therefrom (and how these matters are dealt with in an international context) will also be covered. The course will provide students with an understanding of how international projects are procured, planned and administered as well as give an insight into how legal and commercial risks are identified, priced, managed and mitigated.

To give the course a practical perspective, the course instructors will also share their own experience of the issues encountered in major projects they have worked on across various jurisdictions, such as China, India, Indonesia, Vietnam, and the Middle East. At a time when competition for construction projects has become increasingly global, and when regional and international law firms are involved to a greater extent in advising on such projects, this course should prove to be both practical and timely.

Course Description As the saying goes, the only two certainties in life are death and taxes. Tax permeates and affects all aspects of human and business conduct – shaping every deal and transaction, and influencing the setting up, financing, and operation of every business venture.

This foundational course focuses on the two most important taxes – income tax and GST (accounting for 75% of our total tax revenues). It will acquaint participants with a basic working knowledge of the most common tax issues faced by both businesses and individuals. The first part of the course focuses on GST, the concept of taxability, the unique input tax credits, and its application to common tripartite contracts, and transactions in the digital economy and crypto-assets. The second part deals with the income tax implications of typical decisions made in the lifecycle of a business. Issues examined include different tax liabilities between a sole proprietorship, partnership, and corporation; difference in tax impact of income earned in Singapore and overseas; how to raise debt or equity capital in the most tax efficient manner; how to maximise deductions and allowances to minimise taxable profit; when does permissible tax planning become tax avoidance; as well as common legal and evidential issues in tax litigation. Other topical issues including the economics of taxation, budget, and recent trends and reforms in international tax will be also be discussed.

The course is particularly useful for those interested in commercial law, transactions, wealth planning, in-house advisory, and economic policy. No tax knowledge is assumed, and participants are not expected to make tax computations.

Course Description The legal framework for international trade consists of four interlocking sets of contractual relationship: the underlying sale contract whereby goods or services are sold internationally; a contract for the international carriage of goods by land, sea or air; insurance policies covering loss of, or damage to, the goods; and the international banking contracts between the sale parties and banks financing the transaction. This module focuses on the financing aspect of international trade, although a key theme of the course is that this aspect cannot be seen in isolation from the other sale, carriage and insurance aspects of trade operations. This module will examine the various mechanisms that are used to effect payment pursuant to the terms of the sale contract and that are used to incentivise performance of that agreement. This module will focus in particular on the documentary letter of credit as the principal means of financing international sales, although other financing techniques will also be considered.

Course Description Wealth Management describes an increasingly important and lucrative range of services provided by banks and other financial service providers to high net-worth individuals. Singaporean banks have become global leaders in the provision of such services. In legal terms, the fallout from the global financial crisis of 2008 - 2009 has provided the opportunity to subject the wealth managerclient relationship to sustained judicial scrutiny. The Wealth Management Law course will examine the legal context in which wealth management services are provided, with a particular focus upon the potential liability of wealth managers. Principal themes running through the course will be the extent to which ordinary tortious, contractual and equitable principles are modified to accommodate and facilitate the provision of wealth management services and the extent to which these private law principles dovetail with the applicable regulatory regime.

Course Description The phenomenon of globalization over the last 50 years has been fuelled not just by technological innovation but also legal innovation. However, in 2016, the vote for Brexit in the UK and the election of Mr Donald Trump as the US President, has challenged the movement towards economic integration. Indeed, one of President Trump's first Executive Orders was to cancel the Trans Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) that the previous Obama Administration had worked on for 5 years. It is thus, even more important than ever before to understand and appreciate the existing rules so as to promote the rule of law in what may be an increasingly protectionist environment.

The General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT) and its successor institution, the World Trade Organization (WTO) have attempted to create a system where the rules for the trade in goods and services are clearer and fairer. The legal innovations found in the GATT and subsequent WTO Agreements have also influenced Free Trade Agreements (FTAs) like the TPP and even International Investment Agreements (IIAs).

Fundamental to the WTO disciplines is the principle of non-discrimination. The problem often is, however, what constitutes discrimination, whether such discrimination can be justified and whether non-economic factors such as health and the environment or other public policy considerations can modify the rules. This tension in World Trade Law is a theme in both the disciplines for trade in goods and services as well as the agreements on standards like the TBT and SPS as well as even the trade remedies rules such as Safeguards, Subsidies and Anti-Dumping.
