Following the signed partnership between the Malaysian Shariah Lawyers Association (PGSM) and CanLaw, Malaysia’s first Shariah lawyer-discovery platform is now live at www.canlawsyariah.com.
Users may use the platform to search for a suitable Shariah lawyer by going to the platform and submit their legal needs, where they will then receive three different quotation proposals from relevant registered lawyers. They will be able to access the fee quotations and the full profiles with backgrounds of the lawyers before making an informed decision to make an appointment.
The newly launched CanLaw Syariah boasts of many cutting-edge features, which includes and intelligent search function for users to locate the relevant forms easily and an interactive user dashboard where users can access the profiles and quotations of lawyers within a highly intuitive user interface.
Apart from that, the instant chat feature allow users to contact the lawyers immediately to clarify on the fees or organise the logistics of a potential appointment, before securing an appointment with the lawyer of their choice.
“To maintain neutrality, we do not recommend nor endorse any particular lawyer on our platform. Users are free to interact with any lawyer who responds to their fee quote request – within their private dashboard,” explains Edwin Lee, COO of CanLaw. He also adds that quotations given are not binding and can only be accessed exclusively by the user who made the request. Lawyers will not be able to access other lawyer’s quotations.
“The introduction of CanLaw Syariah will completely change the way Malaysians engage syariah lawyers,” says Tuan Musa bin Awang, President of PGSM. “This is an important step forward as the booming online market will now have unprecedented access to the syariah legal market. We are also very much excited about the various other innovation projects that we have ahead of us.”
