ALSA Malaysia Forum

ALSA MALAYSIA FORUM (AMF)

WHAT IS AMF?

ALSA Malaysia Forum 2020 (AMF 2020)  signifies the beginning of ALSA Malaysia’s academic calendar, where the Annual General Meeting, Governing Council Meeting and National Board elections will be held. Due to its significance, it is attended by Malaysian law students from various law schools and seeks to engage Malaysian law students in academic discussions and activities on a national level. 

This year’s AMF will be focusing on human rights in pertaining to the rights that are provided in our country as our theme will be Human Rights : Legacies & Present Realities. This is because in this current era that people are living in, the issue of discrimination as well as degrading one another because of being different has not been solved as some people or some group of people tend to be neglected, ignored and are treated differently. The forum will be focusing on certain human rights that are being issued which are : 

  • The Limitation of Human Rights, provided in our Federal Constitution
  • Rights of Women 
  • Rights of Children

OBJECTIVES

To educate the students on the importance of upholding human rights
