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 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.
From 2010, 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. For more
