    THE MANY CHALLENGES FACING THE JURISPRUDENCE OF MAQASID (PART 1)*

    by
    AHMAD BADRI ABDULLAH

    In recent decades, due to different factors, awareness on the critical importance of maqasid al-shari'ah as the foundation for the Islamic legal system has been on the rise. As there has been a renewed interest among academics, scholars and government authorities on maqasid, it is important to identify some pressing challenges facing the subject in order to secure its credibility and functionality in current realities. Failing to do so is likely to result in the marginalization of maqasid, as in due course these challenges will become a stumbling block for the realization of its full potential. The existing challenges could, for purposes of implementation of the maqasid, be categorized into two types: theoretical challenges and practical challenges. This article only deals with the former while the latter will be discussed in the next publication of the Bulletin.

    HE HAD 99 PROBLEMS BUT A MODEM AIN'T ONE*

    by
    NIMALAN DEVARAJA**

    In Durkin (Appellant) v. DSG Retail Limited and another (Respondents) (Scotland) [2014] UKSC 21, the UK Supreme Court considered the question as to whether a credit agreement can be rescinded by the debtor where the corresponding supply agreement is validly rescinded. The Supreme Court also considered the duty of care imposed on a bank before it notifies credit reference agencies of a debtor's default under a financing agreement.

    THE BEGINNING OF THE END

    The aptly termed 'laptop saga' began on 28 December 1998 when Mr Durkin ventured into PC World in Aberdeen to purchase a laptop with an internal modem (remember, this was back in the dark ages of the internet, before Wi-Fi was available at your local Starbucks).

    UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCES THE UNAVOIDABLE UNCERTAINTY OF JURISDICTIONAL ERRORS*

    by
    ARTHUR MARUSEVICH**

    The complexities of jurisdictional error have been well documented by common law jurisprudence. With so much diversity in factual circumstances and legislative contexts which allow a judicial review challenge of an administrative action or omission, defining the contours of the concept has proven to be an impossible task. As best portrayed by the High Court's recent decision in Hossain v. Minister for Immigration and Border Protection,[1] the unavoidable uncertainty surrounding what errors rise to the level of a jurisdictional error continues even today.

    Introduction

    It is well understood that the exercise of judicial power in Australian administrative law has constitutional underpinnings not only at the federal level but also at the State level.[2] Specifically, section 71 of the Constitution vests judicial power in the courts to oversee the exercise of executive power.
