Abstract

A Festschrift, to the unfamiliar, is a book honouring a respected academic. Derived from German, the word is likely to be unfamiliar to the Singaporean legal fraternity. Lives in the Law is the first Festschrift to be published in Singapore honouring a legal academic. The editors have not, however, been content with achieving a first in Singapore. As the editors wryly observe in their Preface, what had initially germinated as plans for three separate Festschriften evolved into, "the first collection to honour three [legal academics] in one go," thus achieving another first, this time internationally. Although the undertaking spans less than 300 pages in all, the colossal nature of it is evident from a quick perusal of the acknowledgments.
