Developments in Judicial Review in Malaysian Industrial Law

Kamal Halili Hassan is Associate Professor and Dean, Faculty of Law, National University of Malaysia.

Applications for judicial review have become an important means of access to the supervisory jurisdiction of the High Court of Malaysia for persons aggrieved by decisions of the Minister of Human Resources or the Industrial Court. Although judicial review has been sought in many areas of law, it is in industrial law that such applications have been most widely made. The majority of reported cases in Malaysia relating to judicial review are decisions of the superior courts reviewing actions of the Minister or awards of the Industrial Court. This article discusses the development of judicial review in Malaysia, arguing that judicial activism has moved from a conventional to a radical approach.
