  Product liability law is associated with consumers’ right to damages. Under the product liability law, the consumers can sue the producers or manufacturers for the damage that has been caused by a defect in a product. Product liability law is necessary in order to provide protection to consumers. In Malaysia, prior to 1999, product liability law is based on claims under law of contract and law of negligence. In 1999, the government of Malaysia has introduced the Consumer Protection Act 1999 (CPA 1999) which provides for strict civil liability under Part X of the CPA 1999 for product liability. The purpose for introducing strict civil liability is to lessen the burden of proof of consumers. The introduction of strict civil liability is in line with the international development in which many countries have adopted strict civil liability to overcome the obstacles under the law of contract and law of negligence. Based on doctrinal research and by adopting content analysis method, this study examines the elements of product liability law and defences provided under Part X of the CPA 1999. The study analyses the relevant provisions under Part X of the CPA 1999 to see whether the act is able to give full protection to Malaysian consumers for product liability claims and whether the introduction of strict product liability brings justice to the consumers in terms of reducing their burden of proof.

  Financial consumer protection is essential in the contemporary financial market. Financial consumers in the financial transaction contribute vastly in developing the economy of a country. Sound and effective legal and institutional framework premised the fair treatment of a robust and resilient financial system. The objective of this study is to examine the extent of financial consumer protection in the Malaysian financial system. The study adopted qualitative method with comparative approach between 2 groups of financial consumers, their institutions, governing laws and avenue for help and redress. Findings of the study showed that the unbanked financial consumers are in a disadvantaged status, as there is no law protecting them. On the other hand, the banked consumers are well protected with the enactment of the Financial Services Act 2013 and Islamic Financial Services Act 2013. Finally, it is recommended that the legal framework be reviewed for the enhancement of financial consumer protection.

  The existing laws relating to the sale of goods in Malaysia are contained in the Contracts Act 1950, the Sale of Goods Act 1957 and the Consumer Protection Act 1999. The Sale of Goods Act 1957 is an archaic piece of legislation. The Sale of Goods Act 1957 is outdated and needs to be revamped. The act cannot cope with problems experienced by a modernized and sophisticated society of the 21st century. Consumer protection calls for a review of the act. Defects in the present law relating to sale of goods existed based on two premises; dualism of law which leads to conflict of law issues and the deficiencies in its substantive laws, particularly relating to implied terms and its remedial scheme. Adopting the content analysis method, this study analyses the law of sale of goods in Malaysia, focusing mainly on the Sale of Goods Act 1957 and consumer protection.
