Abstract:     
The Malaysian case Soo Boon Siong @ Saw Boon Siong v Saw Fatt Seong & Soo Hock Seang provides evidence of the inherent impossibility of legal transplants. The impossibility in this case was not caused by differences of legal culture, but the inability of lawyers in a post-colonial state to keep pace with the increasing complexities of the law.
