Malaysian company launches online legal library

A Malaysian-owned legal publishing company has launched what it says is the first online legal library of cases from 11 Commonwealth countries and territories.

The service by Mylawbox Sdn. Bhd. is designed to provide a research tool and legal database for both experts and the public, the company said.

The site was inaugurated Tuesday by Malaysian Chief JusticeAhmad Fairuz Sheikh Abdul Halim.

"With globalization, the world is now a smaller place. Therefore, it is our vision to make this extensive legal resource easily accessible anywhere and anytime," Rostina Gaus, the director of Mylawbox, said in a statement.

The site features cases, legislation and legal articles from Malaysia, Britain, Australia, New Zealand, India, Sri Lanka, Brunei, Pakistan, Canada, South Africa and Hong Kong.

It includes additional features such as case search forms, a dictionary, international treaties and foreign precedents, the company said.

"We have done our own research with online tracking companies and found that these markets have been overlooked, and we see potential growth for this service among the legal community," Rostina said.

Cases available on the Web site cover a wide range from libel suits to murder, and were chosen by an editorial board consisting of lawyers and law graduates, the company said, reports the AP.
