Event Outline

The effect of choice of court agreements on the exercise of jurisdiction by Singapore courts between contracting parties at common law has been clarified in Singapore. The position is also clear under SICC Rules and the Choice of Court Agreements Act but less so on the effect on third parties. The lecture considers the effect of such agreements on the position of third parties from the perspective of both conflict of laws and the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act in domestic Singapore law.
