Reforming the Law of Security Interests: National and International Perspectives
McCormack, Gerard  •  [2003] Sing JLS 1 (Jul)
Back in 1996, a Sub-Committee of the Singapore Academy of Law recommended comprehensive reform of the law of security interests.1 The suggested model for reform was Article 9 of the U.S. Uniform Commercial Code as refined in other common law jurisdictions.2 New Zealand enacted similar reforms in 1999 with the new legislation coming into force in 2002.3 2002 also saw the publication of a report by the Law Commission in England which advocated Article 9 type legislation in England.4 The question arises whether the 1996 report by the Singapore Academy Sub-Committee should be dusted down and whether the law should proceed along the reform path. This paper will consider the arguments for and against reform as well as some of the potential pitfalls in enacting reforming legislation.

Mus Musculus and Homo Sapiens: Metaphysics and the Canadian Supreme Court
Wei, Sze Shun George  •  [2003] Sing JLS 38 (Jul)
This article examines the patentability of genetically engineered higher life forms in Canada and Singapore by reference to the recent decision of the Canadian Supreme Court on the patentability of a genetically engineered laboratory mouse. The Canadian Supreme Court, rather than examining the policy behind patent protection, addressed this question primarily through the lens of statutory interpretation. This article discusses the reasoning of the Canadian Supreme Court and considers its application in Singapore.

Native Title: Dead Capital?
Edwards, Robin  •  [2003] Sing JLS 80 (Jul)
This article explores whether restrictions on alienations of native title land, such as the inability to grant a mortgage to secure finance, will adversely affect the owners of native title land. The objections to inalienability are explored and some of the premises that such objections rest upon are also questioned. Arguments in favour of inalienability are also explored and reasons why restrictions on alienation will not be detrimental are canvassed. Finally, some practical considerations are overviewed, leading to a conclusion that the restrictions in themselves will not be detrimental.
