Chief Justice Dato Seri Paduka Steven Chong together with a delegation of judicial officers from the Brunei Supreme Court attended the 5th Joint Judicial Conference (JJC) on 13 September 2019 hosted by the Supreme Court of Singapore.

Since its inception in 2011, the judiciaries of Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia and Singapore meet at the biennial conference to discuss judicial and legal matters of common interest. The JJC serves as a platform to strengthen and deepen ties by exchanging ideas and strengthening the already resilient and long standing relationships that exist between Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia and Singapore as the law in all three jurisdictions take their roots from the common law. It also provides a valuable forum for the exchange of views on developments in specific areas of law and for the judiciaries to learn from each other's experiences in the administration of justice.

At the 5th JJC, the three judiciaries engaged in panel discussions in the areas of Tort, Contract and Intellectual Property Law, looking particularly at how our regional jurisdictions have departed from the English Common Law in these areas. They also shared their experiences in strengthening judicial administration through innovation and other initiatives. A total of 65 Judges and judicial officers from Brunei Darussalam, Malaysia and Singapore attended the Conference.
