About this Journal

The Singapore Academy of Law Journal (“SAcLJ”) (ISSN 0218-2009) is a peer-reviewed journal of legal articles relevant to Singapore and the common law legal systems. Other than academic articles, it also carries commentary, case notes, book reviews and selected lectures delivered by distinguished speakers at Singapore Academy of Law lectures.

Articles, commentaries and case notes submitted to the SAcLJ are reviewed by experts in the relevant subject areas of law from the SAcLJ’s Panel of International Referees and other academics, legal service officers and practitioners. The SAcLJ’s double-blind refereeing practice ensures the identities of both author and referee remain anonymous during the refereeing process.

The SAcLJ is published both digitally and in print. All refereed articles, commentaries and case notes will first be published on e‑First (ie, our e-publishing prior-to-print module), and then collated for publication in print.

Publication on e-First is on a rolling basis whilst the print version of the SAcLJ is published in March and September.

All print-published material is available digitally in the e-Archive  and also through LawNet, HeinOnline and RMIT. 

The Singapore Academy of Law’s Journals Advisory Committee is responsible for the content of the SAcLJ.
