Singapore Public Law Blog Guidelines

The Singapore Public Law Blog is a forum to discuss all things public law. It publishes commentaries by law professors whose legal expertise, it is hoped, contributes to existing knowledge and critique on matters of public concern. The blog also hopes to show how public law is connected to and impacts people in different aspects of their lives in Singapore.

We welcome submissions and proposals for publication on topics relating to public law, particularly in Singapore, all year round. Everyone is welcome to make submissions to this blog and you do not need to be legally trained or an academic faculty to publish with us.
