Law Review Competition -  The Federal Constitution: A Cardinal Facet of Malaysia

Pertaining to its title, 'lex terram' is a Latin phrase which means ‘law of the land’. In Malaysia, our law of the land, which is the Federal Constitution, has always been a cardinal facet of Malaysia – the core of the Federation which assembles the voices and views of the people on an ideal nation. 

 

Thus, this competition serves as a platform for participants to submit their respective works which will be reviewed by constitutional experts. Also, not only were the winners rewarded with grand prizes, winning articles were also featured on the UM Consti Team’s monthly Law Series and Consti Bulletin!

Public Speaking Competition: Lux Hominum Vita (Life, the Light of Men)

Lux Hominum Vita, which translates to 'life, the life of man' aspires to inspire participants to set the light of human dignity in the heart of their audiences with creative speeches that address socio-political issues and how these issues are correlated to the Federal Constitution. 

 

Hence, we sought the youth's stand and opinion on ‘Undi18’, which is a movement to reduce Malaysia’s legal voting age from 21 years old to 18 years old.

Tik Tok Competition: Sebangsa, Senegara, Sejiwa (Unity in Diversity)

This competition serves as a guide to pivot Malaysians of the potential we have as a diversified society, instead of being drowned in the ocean of negativity. The aim of this event is to celebrate our diversity and how we use our differences to create a stronger bond. After all, our Federal Constitution itself provides that everyone has the right to equality and fundamental liberties.

 

TikTok is rising as a new platform to spread all kinds of knowledge through creative means. Through this competition, we were delighted to see how students relayed their ideas on 'unity in diversity'!
