The ice cream of life

I challenge all of us to be more like ice cream. Let’s store our energy wisely, stay true to our unique ‘flavour’, and when called upon, let’s give it our all – whether it’s a small scoop or a whole tub of effort.

Awas, ia membunuhmu

Fikirkan terlebih dahulu sebelum mula bicara atau bertingkah laku dan jangan jadikan perbuatan buli ini sebagai satu norma kepada masyarakat hari ini

Professor Jason Chuah has worked abroad for over 33 years since graduating from the Faculty of Law at Universiti Malaya. He is spurred by a passion for the Law, especially all things maritime law related, teaching and writing. Despite being born and bred in KL, he has an inexplicable interest in ships. Though a self-declared couch potato if given the chance, he does relish being in the natural environment. He was particularly struck at how green UM’s campus is.

The newly appointed Dean of the Faculty of Law is excited about the amazing opportunities Universiti Malaya offers students, academics and the wider society. Prior to this appointment he was the Professor of Commercial and Maritime Law and Head of Law at the City Law School, University of London. He was the holder of the Cambridge Commonwealth Trust Award, Barclays Bank Scholarship and the Cambridge Commonwealth Fellowship at the University of Cambridge.

His life story is a testament to his motivation and determination – having come from humble beginnings, he graduated with First Class Honours from UM, before travelling to the UK to pursue his further education and career. He expresses trepidation at taking up the role at Universiti Malaya after being away from the country for so long but his love for the country and alma mater became irresistible.

His willingness to put himself out there, bolstered by his faith in his colleagues’ commitment and professionalism, will hopefully drive the nation’s oldest law school to continue to make huge strides in educational excellence on the global stage.
