The topics to be covered in this subject have commercial and practical focus, and include the concept of law in Malaysia, sources of Malaysian Law, the judicial system in Malaysia and the Malaysian laws on core topics such as contract, tort, commercial transactions, companies and businesses and land. Other interesting topics include Islamic law, civil procedure, debt recovery and insolvency, criminal law and procedure and employment law.
