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. I could not be here today if it’s not for you two. I also thank Kak Fizah and Kak Tini for their neverending moral support. Love u guys… Thank you 🙂

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.

My supervisors ask me to attend one talk on legal professional ethics and mobile court today.

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.

Wow! After weeks of attempts to get hold of it, today I managed to download the e-book version of the textbook ‘E-Justice: Using Information Communication Technologies in the Court System’ edited by Agusti Cerrillo and Pere Fabra (Information Science Reference, 2009).

Checkout the editorial review by Amazon.com on the book:

“Technology has had a prevalent impact on nearly all social domains, one being the judicial system. Advancements such as computer-generated demonstrations and electronic filing can enhance presentations and give a clearer, well-organized case.

E-Justice: Using Information Communication Technologies in the Court System presents the most relevant experiences and best practices concerning the use and impact of ICTs in the courtroom. This groundbreaking title draws upon the leading academic and practicing perspectives from around the globe to provide academics and professionals throughout the legal system with the most comprehensive overview of present developments in e-justice.”

Hm… I’m glad I now have this textbook. And now I can’t wait to read the book and start reviewing the articles contained therein…
