    THE SHARI'AH INDEX OF GOVERNANCE NEEDS
    TO CONSIDER SYSTEMATIC APPROACHES*

    by
    AHMAD BADRI ABDULLAH

    Since the launch of the Malaysian Shari’ah Index of Governance on 10 of February 2015, discussions have been taking place regarding the role of the Index in enhancing good governance in the country. The Index employs maqasid al-shari’ah (the higher objectives of Shari’ah) and seeks to quantify them as parameters to measure the government’s performance in key sectors. It does this by incorporating the five essentials of preserving religion, life, intellect, progeny and wealth as key points of reference.

    The achievement of the essentials will be measured within eight rubrics of governance. These are: Islamic law, politics, education, economy, health, culture, infrastructure development and environment, as well as social milieu. The index will be published by the early 2016 to provide an evaluation of the government’s performance in the previous year.

    Quantification is a major component of modern science. Scientists break down complex systems into separate parts and subsequently analyse them in isolation from each other. This is generally termed as the ‘reductionist approach’. Reductionism has been criticised by scholars on the basis that some systems are too complex and cannot be properly understood by looking at any single indicator therein.

    RUNNING A LITIGATION FILE: SEVEN TIPS FOR JUNIOR LAWYERS*
    by
    SIMON R GRANT**

    Barrister Simon Grant provides his observations and tips for young lawyers running litigation files.

    At the start

    In the early years of your career, the point where the matter first enters your office will probably be a partner or senior solicitor delivering the good news that "this one is yours" while dropping three boxes on your desk.

    However it comes to you, the first thing you need to do is assess what you actually have in front of you.

    Tip 1: You need to actually look

    Don't just accept the file note from the solicitor now departed the firm or team that says "everything is fine, the client has been asked to do a few things, and matters can wait until they get back to us."

    If it isn't in some form of order, then your first question should be: "Is this a ticking bomb?

    The expectation on you (quite rightly) is that any issues will be identified early and dealt with. So look.
