About the Events
Members of the Bar have the option of participating in either Event (1) or Event (2), or both.  However, Members are required to make their own travel arrangements based on the event(s) they are attending.
Event (1):     There is a fee for participation in this event, and prior registration with the organisers is required.
Event (2):     Participation in this event is free of charge.  The programme will consist of the following:
  • Morning: Seminar on trans-border legal cooperation between Malaysian and Hong Kong legal practitioners in light of the Belt and Road Initiative;
  • Afternoon: Visit to the Court of Final Appeal (subject to confirmation by the Court); and
  • Evening: Networking cocktail.
Details of the full programme will be shared with registered participants.
Cost
Members must bear their own costs, including the participation fee (in respect of Event (1)), and travel, accommodation, and other incidental expenses.
However, as part of the Bar Council's cooperation with HKTDC Malaysia, we have secured a group incentive fee of USD500 per group for Event (1).  The group has to comprise a minimum of eight participants and a maximum of 20 participants.  For example, if there are 10 participants, each participant will only pay USD50 for the Summit instead of USD300 per person if registration were undertaken individually.
How to Apply
If you are interested to participate in either, or both, events, kindly register by email to Kenneth Ang, Bar Council Special Projects and International Liaison Director, at kenneth@malaysianbar.org.my, on or before 25 Aug 2017 (Friday).  Please provide the following information in your email:
