Non-delegable duty after Woodland and Tiong Aik


Associate Professor Low Kee Yang
School of Law
Singapore Management University




The subject of the delegability of one's duty of care has troubled judges and academics for some time. In the UK, the landmark decision of Supreme Court's decision in Woodland v STA (2013) was an important step in rationalizing the law on non-delegable duty. Recently, in MCST No 3322 v Tiong Aik [2016] SGCA 40, Singapore's apex court was given the opportunity to revisit this difficult area of law. This seminar examines both the Woodland and the Tiong Aik decisions and its implications on the law as well as the lingering challenges.



Low Kee Yang is an Associate Professor with the School of Law, Singapore Management University. An author and editor of several law books, including The Law of Guarantees in Singapore & Malaysia, Read the Fine Print: Avoiding Major Legal Pitfalls and Halsbury's Laws of Singapore, Vol 6 - Company Law (2006 Reissue), Dr Low teaches Tort Law and Business Law to undergraduates. His postgraduate teaching includes the teaching of Financial Advisers Law to students in the MSc in Wealth Management programme and Legal Knowledge & Strategy to PhD in Business students.
