April 14, 2018 @ 08:30 - 12:30RM30
The Bar Council Syariah Law Committee is organising a forum entitled “Administration of Islamic Law in Malaysia and Its Challenges”.
The forum is timely, since the civil-Syariah jurisdictional conflict remains an unsettled issue, as reflected in recent cases.
(1) To raise awareness regarding the existence and management of hybrid cases, ie those that involve an overlap between civil and Syariah jurisdictions; and
(2) To discuss how to move such hybrid cases forward while upholding the Federal Constitution.
