On 15 October 2011, BLC played host to the team from MyConstitution/PerlembagaanKu who conducted a half-day workshop to help us all understand the Malaysian Federal Constitution a little better.
MyConstitution is a national campaign designed to educate the Malaysian public and create greater awareness about the Federal Constitution. The team behind the MyConstitution campaign is the Constitutional Law Committee formed under the aegis of the Malaysian Bar Council and consisting of lawyers, students, academics, members of the media, members of non-governmental organisations and Malaysians from all walks of life.

It was certainly a day of great learning for all who attended. There were a lot of salient, thought-provoking discussions going all around and many of us walked away with at least a better understanding of what the Constitution is and, more importantly, how we should view it as Malaysians.

Also, here are the Rakyat Service Advertisements, another initiative by MyConstitution and based off their 9 Rakyat Service Guides to encapsulate some of the key things every Malaysian should know about their Federal Constitution.
Thanks again to the entire MyConstitution team who made the time to come out on a Saturday morning to be with us!
