Courts Reform Programs: The Malaysian Experience

Justice Azahar Mohamed
(Federal Court, Malaysia; Inns of Court Fellow)

The seminar will address the key developments implemented by the Malaysian Judiciary towards achieving the object of fair and efficient disposal of legal proceedings.

A plethora of issues had dogged the Malaysian Judiciary prior to 2009. The Judiciary was burdened with massive backlog of cases and declining speedy delivery of judicial works. Matters such as efficiency, quality, transparency and accountability become major issues.

It was against this backdrop that in late 2008 the Malaysian Judiciary introduced a framework programs for transformation of the judicial landscape, which covers a wide-range of structural change and reforms.

The seminar will discuss the effectiveness of these measures, and further that are likely to enhance the disposal of legal proceedings with due regard to the interests of all parties.
