Constitutional Law Lecture Series

The Federal Constitution as the supreme law of the Federation preserves the central pillars of democratic governance and rule of law in the country and it is therefore essential that every Malaysian be armed with the knowledge of the Federal Constitution, and an understanding of the rights and limits of the institutions of the government and individual citizens.

For these reasons and to engage in intelligent and rational discourse on the Constitution, Messrs Chooi & Company, in partnership with the Faculty of Law, University of Malaya is organising a series of lectures called the Constitutional Law Lecture Series.

The lecture series is open to the public, and no pre-registration is required. The views expressed by the speakers are of course their own and do not necessarily reflect the views of Messrs Chooi & Company.

In the course of 2017, we will be organising three more lectures on the Federal Constitution. Details will be announced once they are confirmed.
