Advocates Ordinance: Sabah and Sarawak is the First and Only publication that examines the Advocates Ordinance (Sabah) (Cap. 2) and Advocates Ordinance (Sarawak) (Cap. 110).

As the application of the Legal Profession Act 1976 (Act 166) has not been extended to Sabah and Sarawak, the Advocates Ordinance (Sabah) (Cap. 2) and Advocates Ordinance (Sarawak) (Cap. 110) remain the principal statutes that regulate the admission of persons as advocates and to make provision for matters relating thereto in the States of Sabah and Sarawak respectively.

It is through decided cases that one interprets the intention of the legislature, in this case the intention of the respective State Legislatures of Sabah and Sarawak. The publication provides all the relevant decisions that have been adjudicated by the courts. Advocates Ordinance: Sabah and Sarawak is divided into the following sections:
