THE OFFICIAL REPOSITORY OF
MALAYSIAN JUDGMENTS & RULINGS

INTRO

Malaysian Judgments is the official repository of the judgments and rulings published by the Malaysian courts and tribunals. The idea is to develop a centralised and consistent approach towards aggregating and publishing Malaysian judgments with neutral citations.

Malaysian Judgments is a joint initiative of the Malaysian Judiciary, Asean Legal Information Centre (Asean LIC) and Malaysian Law Deans Council.

objectives

Malaysian Judgments aims to facilitate free, easy and meaningful access to judgments, which will be a definitive step towards promoting transparency, access to justice and Rule of Law. Towards that, it plans to:

better manage the publication of Malaysian judgments and rulings through a consolidated interface, neutral citations, search and sort features, and e-mail alerts to help the public to access them freely and easily; and

enhance the comprehension of judgments by providing catch phrases, summaries and commentaries (where possible) to assist the public to understand them better.

contents

Malaysian Judgments is its beta phase.

It currently carries the Federal Court and the Court of Appeal judgments released on or after 1 January 2018.

The judgments/ ruling from other courts and tribunals will be made available in due course.
