The Legal Lion Of The Commonwealth: Judgements
The Legal Lion of the Commonwealth: Judgments Vols 1 & 2
|His Lordship Justice Eusoffe Abdoolcader (Author) , Angela Yap & Ritchie Ramesh (Editors)
Eusoffe Abdoolcader was dubbed "The Legal Lion of the Commonwealth" by the British press.
His legal expositions sent shockwaves from London to Canberra at the time, and his contributions to Malaysian jurisprudence formed by the Supreme Court are immeasurable.
Eusoffe Abdoolcader, the son of famed attorney Sir Dr. Husein Abdoolcader, spent 24 years as one of the world's most terrifying lawyers, reaching the Privy Council in London. In 1974, he was promoted to the Bench.
Eusoffe's judgments, hailed as literary works, combine law, Latin, and social commentary with legendary wit. Lawyers and witnesses shivered in the presence of his steely grit and photographic recall.
The first collection of Eusoffe's oral and written judgments, as well as his dissertation on the American philosophy of police power, are included in this volume.
His judgements created precedents for other major cases in the Commonwealth and are still widely quoted in international law journals. He presided over important constitutional cases in Malaysia, and his rulings set precedents for other landmark cases in the Commonwealth. Malaysia's then-longest-running criminal trial of the historic Muhammad Ali vs. Joe Bugner boxing match in Kuala Lumpur, Merdeka University, Asian Wall Street Journal's John P. Berthelsen, and a slew of other intriguing, thought-provoking cases have all been decided by him.
A 12-year investigation into the Abdoolcader family yielded tributes, historical pictures, an exclusive interview, and previously unreleased conclusions.
