Malaysia is a federation which consists of 13 states and three federal territories. The federal constitution contains three lists of subjects: the federal list, state list and concurrent list (Ibrahim and Joned The Malaysian Legal System (1997)). Civil and criminal law, including family law, are within the competence of the federal government and legislature except for Muslim personal law and native law and custom which fall within the jurisdiction of the state government and legislature. In the states of Sabah and Sarawak, personal law is placed under the concurrent list.
