'For Lawyers & Lay Readers Alike'

28 Feb 2018

Review 'The Legal Lion'

The Commonwealth Lawyer, journal of the Commonwealth Lawyers Association headquartered at Lincoln's Inn, London, pens its thoughts on His Lordship Eusoffe Abdoolcader's book. 

Excerpt: "There is much in these volumes by way of illumination and amusement for lawyers and lay readers alike.

 

That the book should come out now also serves to highlight the very considerable change that the Malaysian judiciary has undergone between Abdoolcader’s time and the present – a reminder which is both timely and necessary.

 

The editors indicate that the present work is “merely the beginning, the first of several other books outlining our research to revive the legacy of Eusoffe Abdoolcader and Malaya’s most illustrious forgotten family.”

 

Those books will, it can be safely said, be eagerly awaited by many in Malaysia and further afield."
