General Reading

The Malaysian Judiciary

This book is an overview of the historical background of the Malaysian Judiciary, including the Islamic judiciary. It illustrates the brief history of the judiciary from the time it found its roots in the English Common Law to the more recent developments where modifications were perennially made to the law by judges to suit local customs and conditions. It also traces customary-legal practices that were peculiar to the East Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak, which practices had since been blended into and become very much part of the Malaysian judicial system.

Since law reports is central to the development of the law or a judicio-legal system, a section of the book also glimpses at the tradition of law reporting in the country.

Islamic Banking In Malaysia

Cases & Commentaries

Islamic banking in Malaysia has experienced an overwhelming boom, both in terms of the practice industry and the legal development aspect. For the stakeholders and practitioners, the practical concern centres, almost always, on the need to ensure that the products and practices abide by the Shariah and complies with Malaysian law. It is a known fact that at times, the Shariah principles did not come on all fours with the local laws and regulations, necessitating thereby much harmonisation effort for the two standards.

Interest Schemes Act 2016 [Act 778]

and Interest Schemes Regulations 2017

The Interest Schemes Act 2016 was introduced to regulate the interest schemes, the alternative mode of fund raising activities for companies, by pooling financial contribution from the public in exchange for an interest in a particular interest scheme. Previously contained in the Companies Act 1965, the Act was driven by the need for a more modernised regulatory framework and investor protection safeguards. With the coming into force of the Interest Schemes Act 2016 on 31 January 2017, the market may see increased activity in the interest schemes industry.

Fiat Justitia Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali

The book Fiat Justitia, otherwise Let Justice Be Done, compiles the more notable judgments of Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Mohamed Apandi Ali, which he wrote or concurred with during the twelve years he was on the bench of the High Court, the Court of Appeal and the Federal Court. The judgments, selected upon the strict criterion of novelty and relevancy, were eloquent and discerning, and spoke not only on the substantive law and procedures, but also on topics of universal concern as the rule of law, constitutional supremacy, prisoner’s rights, et cetera. In a way, the judicial thoughts thus expressed cater for the lawyer’s working needs and make up for a useful tool for the legal profession.

The Law And Practice In Malaysia

Ismail Shariff’s Islamic Banking and Finance: The Law and Practice in Malaysia seeks to fill some of the void that currently exists in the market. It covers many areas of the emergent banking system that is novel and intriguing to many who are not familiar with Islamic principles of finance
