She teaches business law courses such as contracts, sale of property and intellectual property for undergraduate and graduate students in business. His research interests lie in the areas of intellectual property and technology-related laws. She has published in international and local journals. This book focuses on the discussion of intellectual property law in Singapore. The chapters are divided into six parts: Introduction; Copyright; patents, innovations and inventions; designs; trademarks, counterfeiting and unfair competition; and confidential information. Each part is written so that it can be studied itself. However, as there may be overlap between categories, cross-referencing between parties and chapters is required. Singapore`s intellectual property law, as in many other countries, is closely linked to a greater number of international legal norms and standards. Therefore, the study of this branch of law is not complete without taking into account historical perspectives as well as the influences of international treaties and conventions in the different categories of intellectual property.

This book refers to legal positions in various jurisdictions around the world, such as the United Kingdom, the European Union, the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, in order to: (a) allow comparisons between Singapore`s law and others; (b) propose possible or alternative interpretations in areas where Singaporean law is unclear; and (c) provide an indication of the evolution of legal trends in this area and the challenges they may pose for decision-makers. The first substantive work on Singapore`s constitutional law was a 190-page book by S Jayakumar, published in 1976. Since then, generations of law students, judges and practitioners dealing with the subject have relied mainly on three editions of the digest of jurisprudence on constitutional law in Malaysia and Singapore, written by Kevin Y L Tan and Thio Li-ann, the last of which appeared in 2010. Tan himself has also written a small book aimed primarily at a lay audience, An Introduction to Singapore`s Constitution, which is now in its second edition. Thio`s treatise is therefore the most detailed treatment of the subject published in nearly 40 years. As one can imagine, the book comprehensively examines the main features of Singapore`s Constitution, including government institutions and four important fundamental freedoms – the right to life and personal freedom; equality and equal protection; freedom of expression, assembly and association; and religious freedom.

Readers will find much to chew on if they are interested in the constitutional innovations that distinguish Singapore`s legal system from the traditional Westminster model of government – the group`s representative constituencies, non-constituencies and appointed members of parliament, and the elected presidential system, to name only the most striking. Thio also traces how judicial approaches to the interpretation of rights have become more nuanced. A little more interesting, however, are the discourses of constitutional theory. Thio notes in her preface that she decided to write a “treatise.” deals with both theory and teaching, . to explain the rules of constitutional practice and the underlying justifications and to critically question their functioning in practice”. Therefore, it placed documents directly related to the provisions of the Constitution within a broader theoretical framework. Following Donald Lutz, she discusses how constitutions are a confluence of power, justice, and culture, and also examines the concept of constitutionalism and basic constitutional doctrines. Western learning on these topics is combined with a sharp analysis of how they work in the Context of Singapore. Particularly revealing are the sections on how Singapore`s constitution can be seen as a combination of liberal and non-liberal elements, the use of soft constitutional law, and the evolution of constitutional culture shaped by the actions of the government and the courts.

Thio is not afraid to express views that deviate from mainstream liberal thought. For example, it challenges the invocation of the right to equality in some jurisdictions “to advance contentious legal claims and a radical social agenda. such as that of “same-sex marriage”, arguing that “the issues affected by the agenda of homosexuality and its demands for equal treatment or special treatment are complex and cannot be explained by the mere invocation of the `right` to equality. This obscures other competing rights and goods and challenges long-standing values about family and marriage as social institutions. One may not necessarily agree with her opinion, but it is undeniable that she has created a perspective that stimulates reflection and debate on this subject. The treaty, which builds on Thio`s experience of “a dozen years” in teaching and research in public law, confirms that she is one of Singapore`s outstanding constitutionalists today. It was originally conceived as a monograph on constitutional and administrative law. Subsequently, it was decided to focus on the first – a well-made decision, since the text weighs almost a thousand pages. The book of administrative law is a work in progress, and if it is even close to the current book, it should be eagerly awaited.
