2022/2023

On June 22nd, UMCT had the golden opportunity to visit Pusat Pemulihan Penagihan Narkotik (PUSPEN) Sungai Besi.

During this visitation, our advisor, Dr Sheila, along with two UM Legal Aid Clinic students delivered a comprehensive presentation on the Malaysian Legal System and various legal aid providers in Malaysia to the clients in PUSPEN.

We are also grateful of the insights provided into the history of PUSPEN and the rehabilitation programmes provided there. Other than that, the occasion afforded us the opportunity to engage with the clients through a series of engaging mini-games.

As such, we would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the officers and clients for their warm hospitality and amiable reception. This visitation underscored the principle that everyone is deserving of a second chance in life.

On June 13th, UMCT had the privilege to visit the Seremban prison.

We would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for the officers’ hospitality, which included guiding us on a tour of the prison facilities and granting us the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations with the inmates.

This eye-opening experience has left a profound impact on us, deepening our understanding of the incarcerated individuals and the importance of empathy and support in their journey towards rehabilitation.

On 3 May 2023, the UM Consti Team revisited the landmark case of Indira Gandhi a/p Mutho v Director of the Islamic Religious Department of Perak & Ors and Other Appeal [2018] 1 MLJ 545, in our Case Revisitation event.

As such, we would like to sincerely thank the mooters Luc, Nevyn, Akhmal, and Ignatius for their outstanding performance, which made the event a resounding success.

We are also immensely grateful to our esteemed panel of judges, Dato' Seri Mohd Hishamudin Yunus, Dato' Jerald Gomez, and Mr. Fahri Azzat, for their invaluable insights and critical analysis, which provided us with a deeper understanding of the case.

Finally, we extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who graced the occasion and made it a grand success. Your presence made the event even more special, and we hope to see you again soon!

On 17 December 2022, the UM Consti Team hosted a Live Panel Discussion in collaboration with Undi 18 and Parliwomen.

 

The session was moderated by the esteemed Dr Sheila Ramalingam, the live panel features 3 distinguished speakers - Ms. Qyira Yusri (Co-Founder and Education Director of #Undi18), Ms. Jacqueline Hannah Albert (an Advocate at AmerBON Advocates) and Ms. Alethea Wong (Policy Researcher at Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim’s (DSAI) Office).

 

We hope all participants gained valuable insights from the animated conversation on Malaysia's post GE-15!

In line with our Street Consti Initiative, the UM Consti Team organised an inaugural public speaking competition, titled “Libertatem Defendimus: We Defend Liberty!

 

Participants were given the opportunity to present their on opinions on the topic "GE14 has destabilised Malaysia. Yay or Nay?". The preliminary rounds of the competition were held via video submissions, following which 4 outstanding participants were selected to participate in the finals held during our Live Panel Discussion on 17 December 2022. 

We hereby wish to congratulate all winners, as well as express our sincerest gratitude to our judges, Dr. Usharani and Mr. Luc Choong for their continuous support.

Kickstarting the Street Consti Initiative was a short video competition! Participants were given a chance to unleash their creativity and showcase their IG reels and TikTok making skills while advocating for fundamental rights as outlined in our Constitution. 

A heartiest congratulations to all winners, and a special thank you to everyone for their support!

UM Consti Team’s Street Consti Initiative, aims to go back to basics and educate the public regarding basic constitutional literacy that every member of the Malaysian society ought to know at the very least, in a fun and engaging manner.

This was a month long event consisting of 3 contemporaneous activities -  a Video Competition, Public Speaking Competition and a Live-panel discussion!

The UM Consti Team collaborated with the Asian Law Students' Association, University of Malaya (ALSA UM) on 25 November 2022, in conjunction with the Student Exchange Programme 2022.

We held an insightful sharing session on the Malaysian Constitution, with Japanese delegates from Kyushu University and Indonesian delegates from Universitas Tarumanagara, Universitas Pancasila and Universitas Mahasaraswati Denpasar. We would like to thank ALSA UM for the invitation and look forward to more collaborations in the future!

On 24 November 2022, the members of the  UM Consti Team visited the Palace of Justice, Putrajaya.

The Palace of Justice is the Federal Court of Malaysia and is the highest court and the final appellate court in Malaysia. The court was established during Malaya's independence in 1957 and received its current name in 1994.

On 11 November 2022, we welcomed our new committee members of the 22/23 tenure into the UM Consti Team through an induction night filled with smiles, games and good friends.

With the new team onboard, we look forward to continuing our mission to promoting the spirit of constitutionalism! 

The UM Consti Team organised a special lecture on 11 November 2022, featuring the esteemed constitutional expert, Datuk Emeritus Prof Datuk Dr Shad Saleem Faruqi.

 

The aim of the lecture was to dissect the electoral system and democracy, in light of the recent announcement for the dissolution of the Parliament, which resulted in the commencement of the 15th General Election.

 

We hope that this was an insightful session for everyone.
