Data and Features

Depending on your subscription plan, you will have access to the following data and features:-


Malaysian Current Law Journal (MCLJ) Publications
All Current Law Journal (CLJ) and Supplement series (CLJSupp) - judgments from the High Court, Court of Appeal and Federal Court of Malaysia reported in MCLJ printed publications from 1981 to date.

This translates to savings equivalent to RM50,000.00 which is the cost of purchasing a full set of hard copy journals.

The Industrial Law Reports (ILR) - awards issued by the Industrial Courts of Malaysia and selected High Court and Appellate decisions on related cases from 1980 to date.

Laporan Syariah/Syariah Reports (CLJ(Sya)) – reported decisions from the Syariah Courts in Malaysia from 2004 to date.

All case laws are printable in pdf format in an identical layout as appears in MCLJ publications. This allows subscribers to see and use page numbers and paragraph letterings as if they had a printed copy of the reported judgment. In addition, the page break feature in the pdf version enables printing of selected pages.

Legal Network Series (LNS)
The Legal Network Series - a compilation of cases that have not been published by MCLJ from 1894 to date which are generally not head-noted though some have catchwords. Our database contains the largest collection of Malaysian cases and new cases are added to the database on a regular basis. Cases sent in digital format by the court (i.e. on disk or by ) will usually be uploaded within 24 hours of receipt. CLJ Law actively encourages all courts to send judgments in digital format.

Case Citator
This feature is unique to CLJ Law. All cases that refer to a particular case may be conveniently retrieved by simply clicking on the link "CASE CITATOR" located within the case. Much time is saved by being able to retrieve the latest information on a particular case at a click of a button. The list of cases available are those linked to the original case. More cases can be located in this manner than currently available in any hard copy reference. The citator is updated each time a new case is added to the database - you can always be sure of finding the latest information.

Case History
Cross reference to an earlier or subsequent decision involving the same parties without having to conduct a separate search to trace the history of a particular case. Simply click on the link and you’ll be able to access the relevant case.


Malaysian Principal Legislation
This consists of all Federal Numbered Acts from Act 1 to date. There are over 700 such enactments. Any new enactments are added to our database and made available online as soon as we have them in electronic form. All legislation are consolidated - i.e. amendments are incorporated into the Acts soon after they come into force. Changes are noted on the Principals Acts.

Malaysian Subsidiary Legislation
This consists of selected Rules and Regulations from the PU series dating from 1952 and all PUAs from 1969 onwards. Amendments to subsidiary legislation are also available. CLJ Law will add more additional Rules and Regulations, as they become available in future. In addition, lists of other PUA and PUB are included.

Malaysian Amending Acts
Amending Acts A1 - A1451 are available in full text and new amending Acts are uploaded as and when they are enacted.

Act Noter-Up
Much time is saved by being able to retrieve the latest information on a particular section of legislation at a click of a button. The list of laws available are those linked to the relevant section. More cases can be located than currently available in any hard copy reference. The Act Noter-Up is updated each time a new case is added to the database - you can always be sure of finding the latest information.
