The Malayan Cases form a valuable series of case reports from 1904 to 1975 which are both insightful and instructive. These cases remain authoritative today as it is instrumental to the development of law of the nation. It is intended to fill up the interstices in the fabric of the judicial precedents and allow users to appreciate the expansion and progress of the law whilst absorbing the historical value of judgments thus meeting the needs of the judiciary, practitioners and academicians.
The Malayan Cases containing cases from both Malaya and Singapore are now revived with a new look and feel. The resumption of the Malayan Cases endorses the longstanding LexisNexis tradition of case reporting at the highest of standards.
‘Law reports are the raw material of future adjudication and the person who places the precedents before the profession is a public servant of the first importance, even if this is not publicly realized’.
