Professor Andrew Harding is a leading scholar in the fields of Asian legal studies and comparative constitutional law. He commenced his academic career at NUS before moving to SOAS, University of London, where he became Head of the Law School and Director of the Centre for South East Asian Studies. He joined NUS, as Director of the Centre for Asian Legal Studies and Director of the Asian Law Institute, from the University of Victoria, BC Canada, where he was Professor of Asia-Pacific Legal Relations and Director of the Centre for Asia-Pacific Initiatives. Professor Harding has worked extensively on constitutional law in Malaysia and Thailand, and has made extensive contributions to scholarship in comparative law, and law and development, having published nine books as author or editor. He is co-founding-editor of Hart Publishing's book series ‘Constitutional Systems of the World’, a major resource for constitutional law in context. His earlier work ‘Law, Government and the Constitution in Malaysia’ (1996) MLJ was cited by the Court of Appeal and, as Harding points out in this article, misapplied. His latest work, ‘The Constitution of Malaysia: A Contextual Analysis’ (Hart)(2012) caps a lifetime involvement and commitment to constitutionalism in Malaysia.
