To Members of the Malaysian Bar
Malaysian Legal Market Visit to London (29 and 30 June 2016)
Following the success of this programme in 2014, the Bar Council is once again collaborating with the Law Society of England and Wales ("LSEW") to organise a legal market visit for a delegation of Malaysian Bar members to the United Kingdom ("UK") on 29 and 30 June 2016 (Wednesday and Thursday).
The visit is timed with the Capital Markets in the European Union Conference ("Conference") organised by LSEW, which will be held on 28 June 2016 (Tuesday).  Members of the Malaysian Bar delegation who wish to attend the Conference can click here for details on how to register, and the pricing schedule for the Conference.
The visit is specifically designed to provide Malaysian lawyers — particularly commercial law practitioners — networking opportunities for international business development with companies, investors and legal professionals from the UK.
Confirmed sessions that will take place during the two-day visit include:
(1) Talk on doing legal business in England and Wales;
(2) Presentation and question-and-answer session on the Qualified Lawyers Transfer Scheme;
(3) Sharing session entitled "First-Hand Experiences from Malaysian Lawyers in England and Wales"; and
(4) Seminar entitled "Developing Legal Business Ties between Malaysia and the UK".
There is no participation fee for the legal market visit.  Participants pay their own costs, including for international and local travel, accommodation, incidentals and other associated costs.  Travel bookings should only be made following confirmation of participation.  If required, LSEW will provide letters of invitation for visa purposes to all accepted and confirmed delegates.
If you are interested to participate in the visit, kindly register by email to Kenneth Ang, Special Projects and International Liaison Director, at kenneth@malaysianbar.org.my by 3 May 2016 (Tuesday).  
Please provide the following information in your email:

(3) Firm name;
(4) Email address; and
(5) Telephone number.
