Foreword by The Right Honourable the Chief Justice Chan Sek Keong, Chief Justice of Singapore , 18 April 2010

This book provides a useful discussion on the techniques of judgment writing. It provides helpful suggestions on how to structure a judgment for clarity of exposition which should be particularly useful to new judges. Without a basic structure, a judgment may, for one, look disorganised and untidy and, as a result, give the appearance of it having been rushed for whatever reason. Amongst other things, this book also carefully expounds on the rationale for ensuring that judgments are well-crafted, and, in addition, provides useful comparative commentary. Through works like this book, judges may be inspired to improve or enhance a daily chore, which, in truth, is one of the most important judicial tasks that they have to discharge.
