Malaysia Day Special Webinar: The Birth of A Nation - ADR in the East and the West of Malaysia
To celebrate the diversity of our rich culture and national history, that is Malaysia Day, the AIAC will be officially hosting “The Birth of A Nation – ADR in the East and the West of Malaysia” as part of its ADR Online: An AIAC Webinar Special Series on Thursday, 17th September 2020 at 3:00 pm MYT (GMT+8).
Together with the support of the Sabah Law Society, The Advocates’ Association of Sarawak, The Chartered Institute of Arbitrators Malaysia branch and The Malaysian Institute of Arbitrators, this webinar commemorates the coming together of Sarawak and Sabah with Malaya and the establishment of a new nation, that is Malaysia as we know today.
The formation of Malaysia and the amendments of the Federal Constitution has created two separate local jurisdictions in Peninsular Malaysia and for East Malaysia. Here, special provisions are afforded and only applicable to the states of Sarawak and Sabah. With this distinction, arbitration has become a very attractive form of ADR for cross-border transactions in Malaysia, especially in the area of construction disputes.
Join our speakers as they share their thoughts on the ADR landscape in Malaysia, namely for the practice of arbitration, mediation and adjudication in Malaysia.
