The determination of costs is an important matter for both the lawyer and the client. The Law of Costs in Civil Proceedings is the only book in Malaysia to comprehensively consider this subject in detail. It is written by an experienced court lawyer who is also a prolific writer. Clear analysis of the law provides great value in the book. There are also regular references to relevant statutory provisions and copious citations of cases from various jurisdictions, including Malaysia, England, Singapore and Australia. The wealth of information available will undoubtedly make this book one not to be missed.
