Law & Behold #46: Article 8 and Equality Before the Law

Article 8 (1) of the Federal Constitution reads: All persons are equal before the law and entitled to equal protection of the law. The law implies that every person is equally subject to the law, regardless of their social, political or economical status. While equality is not defined, it has been the subject of interpretation. We discuss equality before the law, especially with regard to intersectionality, poverty and human rights, with Emeritus Professor Datuk Dr Hj Shad Saleem Faruqi, Holder of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Chair, University of Malaya, and Firdaus Husni, Chief Human Rights Strategist, Malaysian Centre for Constitutionalism and Human Rights (MCCHR). 

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).
