Proud to announce that on 27 January 2019, MedArbId hosted a dinner meeting, the guests include Honorable Justice Hamid Sultan, Malaysia; Professor Dr. Colin Ong, QC; Mr. Kishore Ramdas, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Malaysia; and Mr. Samuel Seow, Samuel Seow Law Corporation. The discussion was as to extend the realm of dispute resolution mechanism from commercial to general dispute arena via University cum Court Annexed Arbitration.
The concept was mooted by Justice Hamid Sultan to cut down the burden of courts and clear the case backlog, especial in Asian countries. This is a very noble idea towards ensuring maximum reach to justice in an efficient and effective manner. We wish all the success to this idea and hope that a pilot project will be launched soon. MedArbId is looking forward to this and ready to extend its support by providing training and skill enhancement workshops to all stakeholders, in order to materialize the concept.
