Title: One Day Intensive Course on Construction Contracts

Date:  25th October 2017

Venue:  Faculty of Law, University of Malaya

 

Course Description

The one-day programme will equip participants with the fundamental principles governing selected issues and problems that arise in the construction industry. The course will focus on the laws and industry guidelines governing private and government contracts. Claims are common in the construction industry. They may arise as a result of delays, changes, unforeseen circumstances, insufficient information, miscommunication and conflicts. Various types of claims are evident in the construction industry. Claims may also arise out of certification – either delayed or negligent certification or refusal to certify. Parties who have also affected apart from the main contractors are the nominated sub-contractors, domestic sub-contractors and suppliers. Sometimes claims may be the result of negligent supervision or certification. More...

Title: The EU General Data Protection Regulation: So Much To Do, So Little Time

Date: 19 September 2017

Venue:  Faculty of Law, University of Malaya

 

Course Description

The extremely important change in the business regulation in the past three decades will take effect soon. The European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), replacing the current Data Protection Directive (DRD), will be in force in May 2018.   The GDPR is a game changer - a comprehensive and strict framework that carries heavy financial penalties for its non-compliance. The GDPR has expanded its territorial reach as it applies to data controllers and data processors outside the EU if they offer goods or services (even for free) too, or monitor the behaviour of, the EU data subjects. The new regulation applies to any organisation, whether or not it is based in an EU country, as long as it processes the data of the EU residents. More...

Title: Corruption and Control

Date: 11 July 2017

Venue:  Wisma R&D, University of Malaya

 

Course Description

Each year corruption is estimated to cost about USD $2.5 trillion, about 5% of global GDP, and adds about 10% to the cost of global business. About one trillion dollars is paid annually in bribes and political leaders loot about $40 billion a year in their own countries. Among other things, corruption hampers economic growth and performance; discourages investment; distorts natural resource development; reduces tax revenue; distorts human services and infrastructure services. It weakens judicial integrity and the rule of law and overall diminishes the quality of life for all but a very small few. More...
