Malaysia-IMLC 2014: Four More Days for Early Bird Rates! (Deadline: 31 Mar 2014)

IMLC 2014: Four More Days for Early Bird Rates! (Deadline: 31 Mar 2014)





_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


Circular No 072/2014
Dated 27 Mar 2014
To Members of the Malaysian Bar
IMLC 2014 | Four More Days for Early Bird Rates! (Deadline: 31 Mar 2014)
The International Malaysia Law Conference ("IMLC") is the signature event of the Malaysian Bar for 2014.  It will take place from 24 to 26 Sept 2014.  Thus far, over 200 persons comprising lawyers, members of the Judiciary and legal professionals have registered early for the IMLC to take advantage of the early bird registration rates which are significantly lower than the regular rates.

Sign up immediately to benefit from the early bird registration rates, which end on 31 Mar 2014 (Monday)!  For Members of the Bar with more than four years in practice, the early bird registration rate is RM1,000, which will increase to RM1,400 on 1 Apr 2014 (Tuesday).  For Members with less than four years in practice and pupils in chambers, the rate is currently RM750.  The registration form is available here.  

We have taken great efforts to make IMLC 2014 more attractive to Malaysian lawyers, and are working very hard to ensure the topics being presented at IMLC 2014 are current and relevant to practising lawyers. 

There will be sessions covering a broad range of topics of immediate bearing and interest to various areas of practice.  Litigation and dispute resolution practitioners can look forward to hearing about modern appellate advocacy, directors' duties, defamation, liquidation, lifting the corporate veil, and solicitors' liability / professional negligence.  For corporate lawyers, the topics range from personal data protection, competition law, Islamic finance, project financing, trust and succession, international accounting standards, Bursa Malaysia regulatory compliance, and tax considerations, to reporting obligations imposed by Bank Negara Malaysia on lawyers.  Some of the confirmed topics and speakers have been highlighted in the four IMLC Programme Previews currently available, which can be accessed here.
The Honourable Chief Justice of Hong Kong, Geoffrey Ma, will deliver the keynote address at IMLC 2014, while The Right Honourable Chief Justice of Malaysia, Tun Arifin Zakaria, will present the closing speech.  We have extended an invitation to The Right Honourable Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato' Sri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak to deliver the opening address, and hope for a favourable response.  This year's Raja Aziz Addruse Memorial Lecture will be delivered by Yang Amat Mulia Tunku Zain Al-'Abidin ibni Tuanku Muhriz. 

Among the confirmed foreign speakers are Lord Robert Walker of Gestingthorpe, Justice Susan Kiefel AC of the High Court of Australia, Desmond Browne QC, and Eason Rajah QC. 

Confirmed local speakers include Justice Abdull Hamid Embong, Justice Mohamad Ariff Yusof, Justice Azahar Mohamed, Justice Nallini Pathmanathan, Justice Vernon Ong Lam Kiat, Adlin Abd Majid, Ambiga Sreenevasan, Ang Hean Leng, Dr Azmi Sharom, Bastian Vendargon, Chew Seng Kok, Dr Cyrus Das, Edmund Bon, Johari Razak, Nahendran Navaratnam, Ranjit Singh s/o Harbinder Singh, S Suhendran, Tommy Thomas, and V Sithambaram.

We have made a conscious decision to reduce the conference rates this year, despite rising costs.  Please refer to the table below for the registration rates.
