This book focuses on the end-product of arbitration: the award. It examines the law relating to arbitral awards from two perspectives: awards resulting from arbitrations that are seated in Singapore and awards made elsewhere that are being enforced in Singapore. It discusses the requirements of a valid award, the available recourse against an award, its enforcement and the obstacles to its enforcement. Singapore legislation and case law supplement the clear and thorough analysis. In addition, selected foreign cases are used to illustrate the application of comparable provisions in other jurisdictions.

From the Foreword:
“Leng Sun has made an excellent contribution to the subject with this book and I welcome it with much pleasure for a number of reasons. There are few substantive works devoted specifically to the study of awards ... A thorough study of what is needed to ensure its validity and of the issues one is likely to face once the award is made is therefore most timely.
... I welcome this excellent contribution to our study of arbitration. I have no hesitation at all in commending it to anyone concerned with this subject.”
