On the Disappearance of Wigs in Malaysia

Those of us at Loyarburok are fortunate to occasionally enjoy the company of senior lawyers. Even better, we sometimes get listen to stories from their time. Even if they contain no useful instruction, they are always of historical interest. We have decided to collect and relate them as and when we find them so that lawyers and lay persons can learn and remember our common legal heritage that links us all.

We are pleased to kick off this series with a reproduction of Tuan Haji Sulaiman’s explanation, one of the venerable figures at the Bar, on the disappearance of the use of wigs in the Malaysian legal system.
