In conjunction with the upcoming Malaysian Bar-Korean Bar Association Young Lawyers Exchange Programme ("YLEP") in November 2016, the Bar Council is organising a joint seminar with the Korean Bar Association ("KBA") in Seoul, South Korea on 11 Nov 2016 (Friday).
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 10 Nov 2016 (Thursday).  Separately, Malaysian law firms will host participants from South Korea for a similar duration, beginning on 14 Nov 2016 (Monday).  For more information about YLEP 2016, kindly refer to Circular No 133/2016 dated 7 June 2016.
This year's instalment of YLEP will see 12 participants from Malaysia and four from South Korea. 
The joint seminar will focus on issues concerning the use of technology in legal practice.  We invite Members to take part as seminar panellists to share your experience, including initiatives taken, and challenges faced (such as restrictions within legislation, or resource limitations).
