After months into the research, today I am officially elevated to the full PhD candidature: I successfully convinced the postgraduate committee assessors at the Faculty of Law that my research proposal of Courtroom Technology is doable, viable and justified to be carried on – Alhamdulillah… I definitely express my gratitude to my supervisors – Associate Professor Dr. Zaiton and Dr. Bahrin for their continuous support and guidance.

Face to face with the Chief Justice of the Federal Court March 19, 2010

Today there was a Special Session with the newly appointed Adjunct Professor of Law Faculty, UiTM Shah Alam, the Chief Justice of the Federal Court of Malaysia, YAA Tun Dato’ Seri Prof. Zaki Bin Tun Azmi. the session was held at the Auditorium, Chempaka Building. The speech by YAA Tun really touched my heart, especially the part where there are opportunities lying ahead, just waiting to be grabbed. There are no such things as special treatments as claimed by others e.g. the law provides for allocated scholarship for bumiputras to further their studies, but the law does not guarantee their success. It all depends in the effort put in by the students, and opportunities lying ahead of them waiting to be grabbed.

I do not know YAA Tun personally, but that day, I felt as if I know this special person – YAA Tun is a simple man, approachable and His Lordship’s words are full of wisdom. It was indeed a great opportunity to meet this special person…

On 6 and 7 February 2010, I attended an introductory workshop on ATLAS.ti conducted by Dr. Susanne Friese of Quarc. It is a very very cool qualitative data analysis software with user-friendly interface. I have tried it. I’m impressed with what it can do. Further info may be obtained from ATLAS Malaysia blog – ATLAS.ti trainings in Malaysia.

Way to go, Google Scholar! November 19, 2009

I always run searches for my research at Google Scholar. And I always get hits to academic articles. Today I noticed there is a new feature at the search engine website. There is an option to search only ‘legal opinions and journals’. I don’t know how long has the option been there, I just realised it today (pity me…) but anyway… I tested the terms ‘courtroom technology’, ‘ict and court’ and few other terms, and wow! selected articles from journals popped as the result, more academic, more selected, more relevant to my research…

Go ahead and give it a try… Way to go, Google Scholar!

Today the Law Faculty, UiTM Shah Alam organised its 1st Law Postgraduate Colloquium. And I happen to be one of the presenters during the colloquium, together with another 7 colleagues, 3 at the PhD level and 4 at the Masters level.

The event is held at the auditorium, Chempaka building, Law Faculty from 9 am to 1.30 pm. It is smooth sailing, and the assessors are critical and helpful in asking questions and assessing the presentation of the researchers.

I am glad to be able to present my PhD research progress report for the first time since I registered, and I have obtained fruitful input from the assessors for my research on application of ICT in the courtrooms. On this note, I also believe the other researchers are also appreciative of the input by the assessors.
