RESHAPING THE LEGAL PROFESSION AND REFORMING THE LAW
As Chief Justice of the host nation for the International Malaysian Law Conference 2014, aptly entitled ‘Reshaping the Legal Profession and Reforming the Law’, it is both an honour and a privilege to welcome this distinguished international audience as well as fellow Malaysians to this symposium. I should say at once that the theme of this conference embraces a myriad of issues, which I cannot possibly hope to cover in this relatively short opening address. What I will do is to touch on specific themes by way of contribution to the debate on this subject. The theme of the conference is of significance as it signals the need to address the increasing challenges confronting the legal profession, both in Malaysia and internationally, on several fronts.
