Corroboration: Rules and Discretion in the Search for Truth
Hor, Michael  •  [2000] Sing JLS 509 (Dec)
It is easy to think of the corroboration rules as a thing of the past – something which in a few years will no longer plague the law of evidence. Yet we must not forget the apparently intractable problem which they were designed to deal with – that of oath against oath, one person's word against another. Both historically and presently, the law has had to struggle with a choice between a regime of rules or a system of discretion; and the result is a fascinating compound of rule and discretion.

A Purposive Approach to the Law of Common Gaming Houses
Tan, Christopher  •  [2000] Sing JLS 543 (Dec)
This article deals with the ambit of the scope of the term 'common gaming house', found in section 2 of the Common Gaming Houses Act (Cap 49, 1985 Rev Ed). The ambit of the term is important, as many activities are made an offence by the Act only if they occur on premises that are deemed by the Act to be a 'common gaming house'.

Murder without an Intention to Kill
Ramraj, Victor V  •  [2000] Sing JLS 560 (Dec)
On an objective interpretation of section 300(c) of the Penal Code, an offender may be convicted of murder, and the death penalty imposed, if he or she intentionally inflicts even a minor injury, which happens to cause death. This article defends the view that the objective approach is indefensible both legally and theoretically, and offers in its place a qualified subjective approach, which imposes liability under section 300(c) only where the offender intends to inflict what is subjectively known to be a serious injury that might possibly cause death.

Justification in Finnis' Natural Law Theory
Tan, Seow Hon  •  [2000] Sing JLS 590 (Dec)
This essay examines Finnis' theory of natural law by addressing Finnis' solution to the problem of justification that besets any theory of law. It assesses the quality of Finnis' theory from its purported justification of self-evidence, and by asking if Finnis' theory adds anything of value to classical natural law discourse, the scholarship of which he purports to develop.
