Statutory adjudication in Singapore

Statutory adjudication in Singapore

Statutory adjudication has since been adopted by (at least parts of) three other countries, namely Malaysia, the Republic of Ireland and Canada. As things stand, therefore, only seven countries in the world today have adopted statutory adjudication, fewer than half of the common law jurisdictions, and not a single civil law country amongst them.
