In the name of God, most Gracious, most Compassionate.

Greetings from UiTMLaw
Happy New Year to the UiTMLaw community, partners and friends!


Thanks be to Allah SWT the Almighty, for it is by His will and blessing that we are given the opportunity to continue our pursuit of success this new year.

As we enter 2023, UiTMLaw looks back at 2022 with tremendous appreciation, gratitude and contentment. The UiTMLaw family expresses our deepest gratitude to our lecturers, staff and students for your dedication, commitment and cooperation in making UiTMLaw one of Malaysia’s best legal education institutions. We also offer our heartfelt appreciation to our alumni, collaborators, partners and friends in Malaysia and worldwide for your vital support throughout 2022. We look forward to more collaboration in high spirits for 2023.

Looking forward to 2023, what is ahead for the Faculty? I am sure that when 2022 dawned, we all made resolutions to strive harder and achieve more this year than last. To ensure that this positive change is realised, it is imperative that each of us – in our capacity as educators, researchers, staff, students, collaborators and alumni– exercise resilience and hold to a high degree of integrity and work ethic. We are now embarking on a journey towards a Global Marketable UiTMLaw, which will help us deliver research, education, global partnerships and a broader student experience that are consistently excellent and ensure our long-term ranking strategies. Our successes in remaining in the Top 301-340 of the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2023 (Law) and retaining our stellar 6 Stars achievement in the UiTM 2022 Performance Indicator are evidence of UiTMLaw’s determination on our course to achieve more tremendous success.

It is undeniable that here, in the Faculty, we have talented and energetic teams engaged in research, partnership and service that speaks to the concerns of the University and legal communities towards the journey to globally market UiTMLaw; we have competent staff, outstanding students, generous collaborators and we have loyal and active alumni who continue to support the Faculty in multiple ways. The Faculty has indeed mobilised UiTMLaw in a strategic planning process to chart more extraordinary achievements for the next two years. In a nutshell, the strategy helps the Faculty set inspiring targets for growth and development to ensure we remain at the cutting edge.

The Greek philosopher Aristotle once said, “Excellence is never an accident. It is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, and intelligent execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives – choice, not chance, determines your destiny”.

Hence, let us pray that UiTMLaw continues its legacy of excellence. Let us carry out our responsibilities with sincerity, self-awareness and constant self-reflection so that all our efforts are expedited and blessed by the Almighty Allah SWT.

I wish you all a happy and prosperous 2023.
