    RECEIVING BOTH TAKAFUL COMPENSATION AND DAMAGES FOR PERSONAL INJURY IN TORT LITIGATION:
    AN ENGAGEMENT TO UNJUST ENRICHMENT?

    by
    MUHAMAD ABRAL BIN ABU BAKAR+
    JASRI JAMAL++

    ABSTRACT

    The rule against unjust enrichment has always been the governing rule for the Courts in awarding damages in any civil litigation, especially those claims made under the law of tort. The law of tort provides protection for members of society against harm by another members' wrongful or negligent act. It forms a mechanism by which an aggrieved or injured party may claim damages from the tortfeasor for the losses he suffered. This mechanism works through the compensation the Court orders the tortfeasor to pay to the injured party in the form of an award which is to restore the parties to their original position had the tort not occurred. This is applicable to every aggrieved party provided they have locus standi to commence the action. From a juristic point of view, the law of tort can be seen to offer sufficient protection for parties to reclaim whatever losses they had suffered and at the same time protect the tortfeasor from overly compensating the defendant and thus unfairly enriching him. Contention arises on this issue when the aggrieved party to whom damages had been awarded by the Courts, receive further compensation from a Takaful policy. As such, this paper is to find justifications for the Takaful compensation and to address the question of whether such amounts to unjust enrichment of the injured party.

    Introduction

    Conceptually, Takaful (Islamic insurance) is a financial transaction of a mutual cooperation between two parties towards providing a financial security for one of them against an unexpected material risk.[1]

    TRANSFORMING FAMILY LAW*
    by
    JESSICA WOLSKI**

    Reuben*** was born on 10 December 1999. He's 16 years of age. He's in Year 10 this year and loves sport and video games. He's a huge supporter of the ACT Brumbies and likes playing basketball with his mates.

    Reuben seems like your average male teenager, wearing baggy gym clothes, rocking yesterday's dirty socks, headphones permanently planted on his head. He's a little different though. Reuben was born biologically female, named Ruby. He has the anatomy of a female but identifies with the male gender. He suffers from gender dysphoria.

    Gender dysphoria can be defined as a strong, persistent feeling of identifying with the opposite gender and often, a discomfort with one's own assigned sex that causes significant distress or impairment. Those with gender dysphoria desire to live as members of the opposite sex, often dressing and using mannerisms associated with their preferred gender.
