The Need for a Legal Interest in Land in Actions for Private Nuisance - The End of the Debate?
Fordham, Margaret  •  [1997] Sing JLS 436 (Dec)
The need for a proprietary interest in land on the part of the plaintiff in an action for private nuisance has for several years been the subject of judicial and academic debate. In a case decided recently by the House of Lords that debate appears, at least where the English courts are concerned, to have been resolved. This article examines the House of Lords' decision and considers its implications for courts elsewhere.

Lee, Kiat Seng  •  [1997] Sing JLS 499 (Dec)

In England, this requirement, in the context of general insurance, is imposed by the Life Insurance Act 1774. The provisions which relate to insurable interest do not just reproduce he English position. There are material differences between the English and the local positions. It is the aim of this article to explore the possible implications of these differences and to attempt to make suggestions as to the local legal position.

Excessive Statutory Demands in Winding up and Bankruptcy
Lee, Eng Beng  •  [1997] Sing JLS 532 (Dec)
The validity of statutory demands which specify a sum greater than the truly owing by the debtor is an issue which has arisen frequently in both the corporate liquidation and bankruptcy contexts. By analysing the relevant legislation, the authorities and arguments based on both policy and principle, this article attempts to show that the over-statement of the amount in a statutory demand does, in itself, result in the invalidity of the demand

The Nature of the Test of Confidential Obligations and its Implications for the Law of Confidence
Wong, Wai San Mary  •  [1997] Sing JLS 557 (Dec)
A key element of tort of breach of confidence is the nature of the relationship between the plaintiff and defendant. Recent English cases suggest that the test to be applied to determine this relationship may not be entirely clear. This article examines these cases and attempts to consider the appropriateness and consequences of the tests suggested on the law of confidence.

The Inherent Powers of the Court
Pinsler, Jeffrey D  •  [1997] Sing JLS 1 (Jul)
This article examines the source, nature and scope of the inherent powers of the court, as well as the relationship between these powers and the court's procedural mechanism. It has often been the view that the inherent jurisdiction of the English court is applicable in Singapore without qualification. This assumption must be considered in the light of the jurisdictional developments which have occurred since the 1960's. The article also focuses on the willingness of the court to use its inherent powers to ensure a fair and effective process of litigation, and the justification of such a role in the absence, or even in the face, of statutory provision.
