I am recently invited to be a judge at the above Competition held by Asian Law Students’ Association (ALSA) Malaysian Chapter. It is both an honor and pleasure for me, being a former ALSA activist myself (albeit briefly back in my student years in IIUM).
As prescribed, ALSA Malaysia Law Review Competition (AMLRC) is an annual law review competition that seeks to promote critical thinking and enhance the writing skills of law students. It also says that they “appreciate the difference and inclination that we have that are of interest to the public. I think it is a good gesture by the committee. They further state that AMLRC provides the opportunity and platform for law students to examine and subsequently share their opinions which could provide solutions to matters of national interest, whether directly or indirectly.
There are three general themes from which participants can pick:
- Mandatory vaccination: obtaining consents of the concerned
- Patients’ right and right life dilemma in a pandemic
- Reforming data privacy in the Covid-19 Pandemic
DATE: 16TH MAY (submission opens) – 5TH JULY (submission closes)
Well then, I am looking forward to eagerly reading those submissions!
