To Members of the Malaysian Bar
Call for Participation as Host Firms:
Malaysian Bar–Korean Bar Association Young Lawyers Exchange Programme 2016
We refer to Circular No 133/2016 dated 7 June 2016 entitled "Malaysian Bar–Korean Bar Association Young Lawyers Exchange Programme 2016", which provided details regarding that Exchange Programme ("YLEP") being organised by the Bar Council.
YLEP 2016 is an exchange programme for young lawyers from both Malaysia and South Korea, where eligible Members of the Malaysian Bar will be hosted by South Korean law firms for two weeks, commencing on 10 Nov 2016 (Thursday).  The response from young lawyers of the Malaysian Bar has been very encouraging and the selection process is presently ongoing.
The Bar Council is calling for a higher level of participation from Malaysian law firms, to host a number of young lawyers from South Korea for a two-week duration commencing from 14 Nov 2016 (Monday)
Eligibility to Participate  
A law firm that is active and based in Peninsular Malaysia may host participant(s) from South Korea.  There is no limit to the number of South Korean participants hosted by the firm.
In addition to placements in selected host firms, the Bar Council will also arrange official visits to the courts and government agencies for the participants from South Korea.  A detailed programme will be provided to the participating host firms.
Cost of Participation
The cost for Malaysian host law firms is expected to be minimal, as the South Korean participants will bear their own costs.
