Reviewing Specific Oversights in Civil Litigation Reforms in Malaysia

Norman Zakiyy, Kamal Halili Hassan


Judicial reforms in the administration of justice system generally affect the landscape of civil litigation. However, judicial reforms also draw adverse inference on the justice system if certain safeguards are lacking behind or delicate issues of public importance are not emphasized. This study aims at analysing he Malaysian Judiciary Reforms to civil litigation in Malaysia. The method of analysis is based on content analysis. This study indicates that the key catalyst to the success of civil litigation reforms of the Malaysian Judiciary (2008-2011) was contributed by excellent leadership. The study also finds that the Judicial Reforms in relation to management carry qualities that are recognized under established management practices. Nevertheless, the findings also show that there are crucial matters that are not contemplated in the said reform exercise such as the creation of a multi-door courthouse programme, methods to resolve complex civil cases and the plight of unrepresented litigants. Therefore, it is imperative for the Malaysian Judiciary to emphasize on these oversights in its future reform exercise.
