Borneo Law Reports Volumes 1 - 9 [Full Set]

"The reporting is excellent. The...appeal results will indeed be very helpful..."

-Tan Sri Datuk Seri Panglima Richard Malanjum, Chief Justice (Malaysia)

The proper conduct of cases through the court system requires the support of good sets of law reports and journals. The law reports are the repository of the body of case law that forms a significant and important part of the law that is applied by the courts to resolve issues and determine rights, particularly in the common law world where the doctrine of judicial precedent plays a crucial role in the administration of justice through the courts of law.
 
The Borneo Law Reports covers all major areas of law with reference to the most recent developments in each of the areas reported. This work contains more than 500 full judgments (divided into seven volumes based on subject matter headings) decided by the High Court, Court of Appeal and the Federal Court that represent all the important cases originating from the High Court in Sabah and Sarawak from 1993 to 2013, many of which are hitherto unreported in any of the law reports in Malaysia.
 
While the Borneo Law Reports contains cases from several areas of law that are peculiar to Sabah and Sarawak, and provides a very valuable collection of such cases for future reference, the publication also contains much case law on subjects that are applicable throughout Malaysia, including administrative law, banking law, bankruptcy, civil procedure, company law, constitutional law, contract, criminal law, criminal procedure, evidence, family law, revenue law and tort.
