The Office of the Legal Advisor at UiTM (widely known as PPUU, an acronym of Pejabat Penasihat Undang-Undang) has been established since 1997. For two years it was solely managed by an Assistant Vice Chancellor (Special Functions & Laws). From 1999, PPUU operated in its own office at Aras 3, Menara Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah with only one staff. In 2001, the office has increased the number of its staff. Since 2005, PPUU has been re-located at Level 6 Chancellery, UiTM.
Now, it has a deputy, five legal officers and five administrative staff to attend to legal matters ranging from the amendments of UiTM Act 1976, development and facilities, breach of scholarship contracts, staff and student disciplinary issues, parliamentary affairs, advisory opinions and many more.
Today, we are celebrating our 20th year anniversary.
