Talk: “The Basics of Judicial Review” (2 December 2022)

Pupils and members gathered at the Malacca Bar Auditorium for a talk on the basics of judicial review by Ms. Kee Hui Yee on 2 December 2022.

Some of the points covered during the talk were as follows:

  • how the court would proceed if the case involves a mixture of public law and private law;
  • reliefs that can be granted in a judicial review proceeding;
  • a brief study of the case of Norfadila Binti Ahmad Saikin v. Chayed Bin Basirun & Ors, where the damages amounting to RM300,000.00 awarded by the High Court was reduced to RM30,000.00 on appeal; and
  • a “rolling” judicial review, as opposed to a conventional approach to judicial review.

The talk ended with a group photograph, after which Ms. Kee stayed back to take further questions from participants.
