Legal System

The legal system of Singapore derives from English Common Law; however it has steered in its own unique direction since independence. The constitution provides for the independence of the judiciary. The country’s judiciary comprises two levels. The higher tier, the Supreme Court, is made up of the Court of Appeal and the High Court, with the Court of Appeal being the highest appellate court in the country. The lower tier courts include magistrates’ courts, juvenile courts, family courts and coroner’s court. The President of the Republic, with input from the Prime Minister, appoints the Chief Justice along with other Supreme Court judges.
