Launch of the Admiralty Court User Guide

It is our pleasure to let you know that the Kuala Lumpur Admiralty Court User Guide has now been launched by the Chief Justice of Malaysia, Tun Arifin Bin Zakaria on 16 November 2016. The User Guide is a result of the active collaboration between the Bar Council of Malaysia and the Malaysian Judiciary. 

The user guide was occasioned by the continuous growth we have enjoyed in the maritime industry. Hence, the establishment of the court was a step in the right direction in order to give speedy attention to disputes arising from the industry. Therefore, this user guide is a product to intimate you with modus operandi of the Admiralty Court. The User Guide is also supported by the Kuala Lumpur Regional Centre for Arbitration and the International Malaysian Society of Maritime Law.

In this guide, you will understand in unambiguous terms how the Admiralty Court works and all its rudimentary frameworks. Armed with this knowledge, we expect members of the International Malaysian Society of Maritime Law to take full advantage of the guide it offers to make maximum use of the court.

To put it succinctly, this book is meant to guide us through the general proceedings in the Admiralty Court. It is not meant to replace Order 70 of the Rules of Court 2012 or interfere with any court process (es).

We hope that we all we make a good use of this book for the betterment of our industry.

Meet & Greet session with the Honourable Minister of Transport, Malaysia

The September 1 event was an event that will linger for a long time in our memories as it afforded us all the opportunity to interact with the honorable minister and bare our minds on issues bordering on our industry as well as the aspirations of our great society. It was a wonderful networking session for us all as it also gave us the opportunity to build new bridges of professional relationships across different sub-sectors of our industry. Opportunities, like this, to fraternize with the who-is-who in the industry do not come often, I’m glad we all made maximum use of it to collaborate and share ideas about ways of advancing our individual careers as well as building for ourselves a formidable industry.

International Malaysian Society of Maritime Law launches on 11 April 2016

Monday 11th April was a milestone in the careers of maritime industry players in Malaysia. On this date, International Malaysian Society of Maritime Law (IMSML) was launched by our Patron and the former Chief Justice of Malaysia, Yg Bhg Tun Zaki Bin Tun Azmi.

Prior to this time, maritime industry players in Malaysia operated independently. Everyone worked in isolation and operated their rules. Needless to say, this made it difficult for the maritime industry players in Malaysia to have a common voice and pursue their common interest. With the launching of International Malaysian Society of Maritime Law (IMSML), it’s the dawn of a new era for maritime industry players in Malaysia. Part of the reasons for the formation of this organization is to bring maritime industry players in Malaysia together under one umbrella. By so doing, they will be able to put heads together to address the problems confronting their sector. Among other things, the International Malaysian Society of Maritime Law (IMSML) is expected to pursue the interest of practitioners of the maritime sector while providing guidelines to uphold the best practices in the sector.
