Blessing or Burden? Recent Developments in Actions for Wrongful Conception and Wrongful Birth in the U.K. and Australia
Fordham, Margaret  •  [2004] Sing JLS 462 (Dec)
Several cases involving claims for wrongful conception or wrongful birth have come before the English and Australian courts in recent years. The decisions in these cases have not been consistent and the law has been left in a state of some uncertainty. This article discusses the cases and considers the direction which the law in this area might be expected to take in future.

The 2003 SARS Outbreak in Hong Kong: Review of Legislative and Border Control Measures
Chan, Elim Chan and Schloenhardt, Andreas  •  [2004] Sing JLS 484 (Dec)
Deemed "the first severe and readily transmissible new disease to emerge in the 21st century", Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome ('SARS') took the world by shock. Originating from Guangdong province in the People's Republic of China in mid-November 2002, the disease spread to some 30 countries within a matter of weeks. By August 2003, the World Health Organisation had reported 8422 cases of confirmed SARS, of which 916 resulted in death of the patient. This article examines the legislative changes the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of China government implemented in its fight to contain the disease, regional initiatives taken, and the border control measures adopted by the Hong Kong Government in order to prevent the transmission of SARS. Finally, the article discusses the effectiveness of such measures and provides recommendations in the anticipation of another SARS or SARS-like epidemic.

The European Union Data Protection Directive and the Adequacy of Data Protection in Singapore
Lehdonvirta, Vili  •  [2004] Sing JLS 511 (Dec)
The European Union Data Protection Directive requires member states to place restrictions on transfers of personal data to countries that cannot guarantee an adequate level of data protection. Countries that do guarantee adequate protection enjoy a smooth business environment and an enhanced ability to participate in trade. In this paper I examine the adequacy of Singapore's data protection regime, and in particular the Model Data Protection Code. I suggest various amendments to the regime to enable Singapore to meet the Directive requirements. To carry out the assessment, I use a framework developed by the Article 29 Working Party, the body that in practice carries out the official adequacy assessments for the EU.
