Registration for CAPE's Rule of Law Seminar
The Singapore Court of Appeal stated in the seminal case of Chng Suan Tze v Minister for Home Affairs  that "The notion of a subjective or unfettered discretion is contrary to the rule of law. All power has legal limits and the rule of law demands that the courts should be able to examine the exercise of discretionary power."
What do these stirring words mean? And what relevance do they have to our lives as citizens of Singapore?
Come join us to learn what the rule of law is, and what role the judiciary plays in our constitutional democracy from Professor Kevin Tan (NUS Law). Hear also from Mr Peter Low and Mr Choo Zheng Xi of Peter Low & Choo LLC about their experiences litigating cases of public interest on issues such as the Marsiling-Yew Tee by-election, the constitutional challenge against Section 377A of the Penal Code and preventive detention under the Internal Security Act in relation to the alleged "Marxist Conspiracy" of 1987.
This Rule of Law seminar is part of CAPE's larger Political Processes series, that comprises Parliament 101 and the International Human Rights Advocacy seminar.
