Play Back from the Past, Fast Forward to the Future
“The ASEAN Economic Community continues to be a work in progress. A brilliant initiative by our Chief Justice via the Asian Business Law Institute last year harnesses thought leadership on convergence of laws. I would add that in order to look for convergence, one must understand divergence. Comparative law and conflict of laws would be critical subjects to master and learn not only by students but also legal practitioners. In my view, the way of the future will involve choice of law in major contracts being a carefully considered, informed decision.”
The above paragraph was from the speech delivered by Gregory Vijayendran, President, The Law Society of Singapore at the Chambers Asia Pacific Awards Dinner. Click here for the adapted and developed speech on the Law Gazette website.
