New Order 63A on E-Filing – Rules of Court 2012 September 11, 2012

The recently enforced Rules of Court 2012 finally introduces a provision on e-filing by virtue of Order 63A of the Rules. To the least, this new Order 63A which came into force on 1 August 2012 addresses the concerns by many lawyers on the absence of legal provisions on ICT at the courts.

Nonetheless, e-filing remains an option for filing of court documents, as it is still not compulsory. Order 63A of the Rules gives power to the Registrar to establish and make provision for e-filing services.

In addition, there are no specific provisions to cater for the other ICT systems at the courts e.g. case management system, queue management system, court recording and transcription, audio and video conference system, and community and advocates portal. Probably the other systems will be managed internally by practice directions and best practices, instead of prescribing specifically in the Rules.

The Malaysian courts would take another leap into the technological phase, with the proposed launching of the audio conference system at the courts in Kuala Lumpur. Audio conference is where the parties relevant to the case would be able to communicate with each other via fixed line or mobile phone without being physically present at one place. This is indeed an initiative by the Malaysian judiciary to further enhance the delivery of the civil justice system in Malaysia … Click here to read more

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…

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.
