The Timely Case for a Law Reform Commission

Laws need to constantly evolve to keep abreast with political, economic, and social developments. The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the increasing need for legislative activism that enables proactive and swift action when reviewing, updating, and drafting laws. Ensuring laws remain on par with a rapidly changing landscape requires more robust measures that go beyond the conventional legislative process.

In this article, Mohamad Izahar Mohamad Izham and Mohamad Ari Zulkarnain of the Corporate & Government Advisory Practice of Zaid Ibrahim & Co. (a member of ZICO Law) will delve into the need for a Law Reform Commission and why there is no better time than now for the Malaysian Government to set up an independent commission to complement the law making process and help the Government in navigating these uncertain times.
