In 1977, the then long-established Malaya Law Review (renamed the
Singapore Journal of Legal
Studies in 1991) commenced a regular section with the aim of recording
Singapore's growing state practice in international law. In time, a South-East
Asian section was also included to reflect the wealth of emergent South-East
Asian practice. In 1997, in consideration of the fact that the international law
articles and regular sections in the Singapore Journal of Legal Studies had
become well-established, the Singapore Journal of International & Comparative
Law was founded in its own right.
Beginning with Volume 8 of 2004, the Singapore Year Book of International Law (SYBIL) succeeded the Singapore Journal of International and Comparative Law, thereby completing a process which began with the first scholarly documentation of Singapore's international law practice in 1977. The final issue of the Singapore Year Book published was Volume 12 of 2008. A complete selection of all articles from our current and past volumes is accessible from the SYBIL archives.
In 2006, the
Asian Journal of Comparative Law was launched to
further the mission of providing a platform for
comparative law scholarship originally set out by
the Singapore Journal of International and
Comparative Law. The journal is produced for the
Asian Law Institute by the National University of
Singapore, Faculty of Law.
From 2011, the Asian Journal of International Law succeeds the Singapore Year Book. The Journal is produced for the Asian Society of International Law by the National University of Singapore Faculty of Law.
