The Constitutional & Rule of Law Series

The Constitutional & Rule of Law Series (CRLS)

The Federal Constitution delineates federal and state powers. This division of powers between the Federal and State governments can sometimes lead to conflict, particularly when both Federal and State governments seek to legislate on the same subject matter. Join us for the third session of the CRLS on 9 May 2024 (Thursday) at 4.30pm where the panellists will discuss “Federal and State Powers – Consonance or Conflict?”. For further details and to register, please refer to the attached flyer.

The Constitutional & Rule of Law Series (CRLS)

For the Second Session of the CRLS, we will be looking into the Role of the Judiciary in the Federal Constitution.

Join us on 31 January 2024 (Wednesday) at 4.30pm for a thought-provoking dialogue exploring the intricate landscape of the Malaysian judicial system, its historical context, evolution and the interplay between the judiciary, the executive and the legislature.
