We understand that many of you have not received our e-mail explaining the temporary closure of Malaysian Legal Alert (MLA). It appears that our message went to the spam box of at least some of you. We apologise for the consequent inconvenience.

MKMS, in partnership with the University of Malaya, is in the process of developing Asean Legal Information Centre (Asean LIC) – a beta/ limited release version of the Asean LIC carrying Malaysian and the Philippine legal/ tax information is currently available at aseanlic.com. Later this year, we propose to upgrade MLA to Asean Legal Digest (ALD), and until such upgrade, we have suspended the operations of MLA. That is why we did not invoice you for the Year 2017.

For the time being, you may visit Asean LIC web portal for the latest Malaysian legal/ tax developments. You may also register for Asean Law Alerts (it’s free!) at http://aseanlic.com/subscribe.
