Contractarianism, Contractualism, and the Law of Corporate Insolvency
Mokal, Rizwaan Jameel  •  [2007] Sing JLS 51 (Jul)
What is the appropriate way of theorising about corporate bankruptcy law? That lies, argues this paper, in rejecting Pareto and Kaldor-Hicks efficiency in favour of a particular conception of transaction cost efficiency, and in rejecting the 'contractarian' Creditors' Bargain Model in favour of the 'contractualist'Authentic Consent Model. The paper vindicates these arguments with an analysis of the automatic stay which characterises the collective liquidation regime, of the pari passu principle often said to be at the heart of this regime, and of the liability imposed in some jurisdictions on the managers of terminally distressed companies for failing to take reasonable steps to avoid further loss to their company's creditors.

Regulating Places of Worship in Indonesia
Crouch, Melissa  •  [2007] Sing JLS 96 (Jul)
Focusing on places of worship in Indonesia, this paper examines whether the right to freedom of religion for religious minorities is protected by recent changes to the law. The paper begins by looking at an Old Decree, which was an attempt by the New Order to control religion and came to be used as justification by radical Islamic groups to close churches. Given a number of key changes in the law since the end of the New Order, this Old Decree became obsolete. The second part of this paper analyses the New Regulation. It does this by charting the debate surrounding the New Regulation, outlining the present framework of the Regulation and then discussing the response of the public since its introduction. The final part reflects on why the New Regulation was passed by the government and suggests options to restore the right to freedom of religion for religious minorities in relation to places of worship.

Legal Advice Privilege and the Corporate Client
Ho, Hock Lai  •  [2006] Sing JLS 231 (Dec)
There is much recent debate on the scope of legal advice privilege that is available to a corporation. A major source of controversies is the judgment of the English Court of Appeal in Three Rivers D.C. v. Bank of England (No. 5). This article addresses two particularly difficult questions. First, when is a communication made between the lawyer acting for a corporation and an employee or officer of the corporation privileged? Secondly, under what circumstances, if any, would the privilege apply to a document prepared by an employee or officer for the purpose of enabling the corporation to obtain legal advice? An attempt is made to find answers to these problems within the terms of the Evidence Act. Lessons will be drawn from the law of England, Australia and the United States.
