Walter Lewin of MIT in one of his YouTube clips says Malus law is derivable in both Maxwell Equations and Quantum Mechanics. He made a point that blue light in a filter will come out as blue light after the filter, so it needs a quantum mechanic explanation. Now I wish MIT's clips can be reduced to 10 minute segments rather than a 75 minute long lecture which I am not willing to sit through.
Now here is another reply in a Google search for "Malus law derived from Maxwell Equations"
Ziggurat 20th June 2007, 05:43 AM Malus's law follows from simple trigonometry plus the fact that the intensity of light is proportional to the square of the field. You can consider the last part to be a classical result of Maxwell's equations (there are quantum mechanics explanations for that too but you don't need them).

Now I think Ziggurat's answer has problems compared to Lewin's answer, because of the single blue photon intensity is the same going in as coming out and thus the quantum explanation needs to enter the picture.
However! As I stated earlier, if you have the Symmetrical Maxwell Equations with magnetic monopoles, and thus have a pilot wave along with the blue photon wave, then the blue photon in is the same as the blue photon out and where the pilot wave does all the alterations to satisfy the Malus law.
So when you include in the Maxwell Equations: 1) magnetic monopoles 2) pilot wave 3) double transverse waves
That you get all of quantum mechanics derived out of the Maxwell Equations, not just Malus law.
