Malaysian Principal Legislation
This consists of all Federal Numbered Acts from Act 1 to present day. There are over 700 such Acts. Any new Acts are uploaded on-line as soon as we have them in electronic form. All legislation are consolidated - i.e. amendments are incorporated into the Acts soon after they are in force. Changes are noted on the Principal Acts. In 2002 we began working on versioning some of these acts so that subscribers may refer to the act as it was at a specified date.
Malaysian Subsidiary Legislation
This consists of selected Rules and Regulations from the PU series dating from 1966, PUAs from 1946 and PUBs from 1972 onwards. Amendments to subsidiary legislation are also available. MyLawBox will add more additional Rules and Regulations, as they become available in future.
Malaysian Amending Acts
Amending Acts A1 - A1400+ are available in full text and new amending Acts are uploaded as and when they are enacted.
The current year's Bills of Parliament are available - these include Bills of Principal and Amending Acts given their first reading in the Malaysian Federal Parliament.
This is a searchable and browseable database of articles as appearing in MCLJ publications and the Legal Network Series (LNS(A)). The articles are arranged by year, title, subject, and author. The articles are of a high quality on contemporary legal topics.
Malaysian law uses either English or Bahasa Malaysian. There is an increasing use by the Courts of the Malaysian language. This is a database of Legal terms translated from Malaysian to English and from English to Malaysian. Over 4,000 terms are translated for use in legal research. Users are encouraged to add to the database or offer variations to the translations already present.
