This book examines the state of law and justice in Malaysia today and in the future by reassessing Vision 2020. It offers the opinions and analyses of famous legal authors and philosophers from a range of ethnic and religious backgrounds on how law fits into a more comprehensive vision of justice and Malaysia's development.

The analyses in this book are even more pertinent today given the nation's political climate. This book's chapters address a wide range of topics that are both public and private in nature. The space granted to Islamic law and indigenous law, as well as constitutional supremacy and legal pluralism, are a few distinctive aspects of Malaysian law that are taken into account.

Law and development; Indigenous land rights; constitutional law; and public prosecution are the main topics of Part 1, "Law and Government," which is concerned with public law issues.
Family law, children's rights, and Islamic finance are some of the topics covered in Part 2, "Family and Finance," which is primarily focused on the private sector.

Legal professionals, judges, judicial officials, academics, members of civil society organisations, and anybody else interested in Malaysian law and justice should find this book interesting.
