What is In Personam?
A site on Malaysia and the law.
We provide writings and thoughts by practitioners of the law (qualified advocates and solicitors, practising and non-practising), members of the legal fraternity, and writers with legal background.
Our primary goal is to educate and inform. We hope to encourage legal reading among the general populace. We also hope that readers may gain insight and useful information on various legal issues.
May I contribute my articles?
Yes, if you are an advocate and solicitor of the High Court of Malaya or a member of the Malaysian legal fraternity.
All advocates and solicitors, practising and non-practising, will be verified against the records of the Bar Council. Other members of the legal fraternity will have to verify their affiliations. Exceptions to this rule will only be made on a case-by-case basis.
What are the terms for submitting my articles here?
We do not make stylistic or content amendments to articles, but you agree that we may make any necessary editing to ensure consistency and to remove spelling/grammatical errors prior to publication.
We accept articles in the English and the Malay language, and always encourage and recommend translations in the spirit of our national language.
We do not allow, and will remove, any self-laudatory statements in articles.
The law is above politics. Articles that discuss the law that touch on political issues will be accepted; political content per se will be refused.
The editors may always refuse the publication of submitted articles that do not meet the site’s primary goals.
Who owns my articles?
You own all rights to your articles. Your documents, once published here, will merely be made accessible to the public at large via HTML and/or PDF.
Will my articles be accredited with CPD points by the Malaysian Bar?
‘CPD’ refers to Continuous Professional Development.
Each 500 words (including title, headings and sub-headings) will receive 1 CPD point upon publication on www.in-personam.com. If you would like your article to be accredited, send an e-mail to email@example.com with the subject heading as “CPD Accreditation” and these details:
