The Enforcement of Contracts Involving Corruption or Illegality in Other Countries
Reynolds, FMB  •  [1997] Sing JLS 371 (Dec)
In 1929 the English Court of Appeal held an English Contract to smuggle whisky into the United States contrary to the prohibition laws unenforceable. The case was unusual in that the English court took note of illegality under a foreign law. The writer argues that the reasoning behind this case requires disentangling, and that a general principle of non-enforcement of contracts which contemplate the breach of foreign laws in a way contrary to international morality should be developed from it.

The Early Development of the Discovery Process in Civil Actions in Singapore
Pinsler, Jeffrey D  •  [1997] Sing JLS 396 (Dec)
Discovery is a fundamental feature of the civil suit because of its impact on the course and outcome of the litigation. This article examines the development of the discovery process from the time of the first statutory code governing civil procedure, the Civil Procedure Ordinance, 1878, to the Rules of the Supreme Court, 1970. The article also measures the effectiveness of the process during this period, and considers the viability of the traditional policies which had governed it for so long.

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.

Another Clog on the Construction of Contracts? The Parol Evidence Rule and the Use of Extrinsic Evidence
Seng, Kiat Boon Daniel  •  [1997] Sing JLS 457 (Dec)
In the recent decision of Citicorp Investment Bank (Singapore) v Wee Ah Kee, our Court of Appeal examined the parol evidence rule. In interpreting the agreement in question, the court appears to have taken a restrictive view of the use of extrinsic evidence. This article explains how courts use extrinsic evidence to interpret instruments, and analyses the parol evidence provisions on interpretation in the Evidence Act
