Circular No 030/2017
Dated 14 Feb 2017         
To Members of the Malaysian Bar
Invitation to Participate in Mentor-Mentee Programme Relating to Practice Management
We refer to Circular No 029/2016 entitled "Invitation to Participate in Mentor-Mentee Programme Relating to Practice Management", dated 3 Feb 2016.
The Bar Council Small Firms Committee ("SFC") is pleased to announce that the Register of Mentors, which is available on the Malaysian Bar website, has been updated.
The Register of Mentors contains names of senior Members from all the State Bars, who have agreed to share their wealth of knowledge and experience from years of running a legal practice.
The Register of Mentors, which is updated periodically, is attached.  It is also accessible here, or from the drop-down menu under the "Directories" tab on the Malaysian Bar website.
The objective of maintaining such a list is to provide Members, who are new in practice and wish to set up their own practice, or who are sole proprietors or partners of smaller firms, an opportunity to seek guidance from senior Members on issues relating to practice management.
(1) To schedule an appointment to meet with mentors, please contact them directly using their contact details as provided in the Register, which is attached with this circular.
We hope that Members of the Bar who require help and guidance in areas of practice management will avail themselves of this opportunity.
(2) SFC also invites Members of the Bar to take on the role of being a mentor, so that the register can be expanded.  If you are interested to serve as a mentor in support of this initiative, please complete and submit the attached reply slip by email to vanimalar@malaysianbar.org.my and bazli@malaysianbar.org.my.
The Bar Council thanks all mentors for kindly consenting to assist and guide fellow members of the profession.
Should you have any enquiries, please contact Vanimalar Money Selvam, Officer, by telephone at 03-2050 2100, or by email at vanimalar@malaysianbar.org.my.
Thank you.
George Varughese
Chairperson
Small Firms Committee
