Law & Behold #42: Constitutional Supremacy, Separation of Powers, Checks & Balances

On this episode of Law & Behold, we tackle two Constitution fundamentals: Constitutional Supremacy, and also Separation of Powers, Checks and Balances. What does it mean that the Constitution stands as the supreme law of the land? How does the Federal Constitution provide for the separation of powers, namely through the three branches of the Executive, the Federal Legislative and the Judiciary? Firdaus Husni (Chief Human Rights Strategist, Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR) and Kee Hui Yee (lawyer, Kanesalingam & Co) join us to answer these questions and more. Law & Behold, is a monthly series which aims to arm Malaysians with constitutional literacy, and is done in collaboration with The Malaysian Bar, the University of Malaya's Faculty of Law, and the Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR).
