Circular No 130/2018
Dated 25 May 2018

To Members of the Malaysian Bar

Malaysian Bar Legal Training Exchange Programme 2018
with Law Associations in China (August 2018)

In the spirit of the good working relationship between the Malaysian Bar and the Guangxi Lawyers Association ("GXLA"), Guangdong Lawyers Association ("GDLA"), and Shenzhen Lawyers Association ("SZLA") cemented in the Memorandums of Understanding signed by the Malaysian Bar with each of the three law associations, on 10 Nov 2016, and 26 and 27 Apr 2018 respectively, the four law associations will organise the Legal Training Exchange Programme ("LTEP") 2018 in August 2018.

LTEP 2018 is a reciprocal legal training exchange programme for lawyers from both Malaysia and China, where eligible Members of the Malaysian Bar will be hosted by law firms in Guangxi, Guangdong, and Shenzhen.  Members from GXLA, GDLA and SZLA will also have the opportunity to be hosted by law firms in Peninsular Malaysia.

The dates for the exchange programme are as follows:

(1)    6–17 Aug 2018:  Participants from GXLA, GDLA and SZLA are hosted by law firms in Peninsular Malaysia; and

(2)    20–31 Aug 2018: Members of the Malaysian Bar are hosted by law firms in China.

About the Programme

A brief summary of the programme follows below:

(1)    LTEP 2018 is a law firm-based programme, with law firms in each country sending participants to, and receiving participants from, law firms in the other country.

(2)    Participation is limited to a maximum of only 18 Members from the Malaysian Bar, who will be placed in member firms of GXLA, GDLA, and SZLA.  Likewise, six participants from each of the three law associations will be placed in law firms in Peninsular Malaysia.

(3)    The language used in LTEP 2018 will be English.  However, knowledge of Mandarin would be advantageous.

(4)    Host law firms are responsible for formulating their own training programme, which will depend on the practice areas of the participants being hosted.

(5)    Participants are required to prepare a report on the training that they have undergone, and to submit it to their respective law associations on the final day of their training programme.


Participating Malaysian law firms are expected to bear the expenses for each participant they host, including the costs of accommodation, food, and training.  In addition, a sum of RM1,500 must be paid to the Bar Council to cover the costs of transportation on the day of arrival, accommodation for the first night (on twin-sharing basis), two lunches, and two dinners (welcome and farewell) which will be arranged by the Bar Council.

Participants from each country will pay for their own airfare, and local transport and incidental expenses.

How to Apply

If you are interested to participate, kindly register online here on or before 22 June 2018 (Friday).

Should you have any enquiries, please contact Kenneth Ang, Special Projects and International Liaison Director, by email at

Please ensure that you are able to commit to the programme dates, either as a participant or host, before registering.

Thank you.

Watch National Geographic Staff Answer Nearly Impossible Geography Questions
Every year for the past 30 years, students travel to our headquarters in Washington, D.C. to compete in the National Geographic Bee. These bright, young minds have studied maps and learned facts about many countries and regions around the world, some of which I have to admit I never even knew existed. It's easy to get blown away by the knowledge these kids have gained in their school years—but how do they match up against the staff at National Geographic? As we found out from making this video, surprisingly well!

Take a quiz to figure out how well you'd do against Geo Bee champions.

See How Termites Inspired a Building That Can Cool Itself
When you think of termites, you probably think of hungry pests that destroy homes if given the chance. But what if I told you they are actually some of nature's greatest architects?

While producing this animated video, I was amazed to learn these incredible insects build structures so high they rival our own human skyscrapers in scale. Learn how one innovative architect used biomimicry to build his own termite-inspired architectural marvel.

How the Kilauea Eruption Affected This Hawaii Community
A paradise faces literal fire and brimstone—an old name for sulfur, which suffuses the air around the disaster on Hawaii's Big Island. Both of the people who filmed this footage are connected to the community of Leilani Estates, and understand the chaos brought by Kilauea's force. For some residents, retiring to Leilani was the fulfillment of a dream, notes photographer Warren Fintz. Everyone knew they faced a risk. But the volcano's change from consistent flow to life-threatening emergency was sudden, and devastating.

A Brief History of How Plastic Has Changed Our World
I've always been fascinated by archival footage. It's such a wonderful medium to learn about perceptions and attitudes from the past. The Planet or Plastic? issue of National Geographic presented a great opportunity to explore how exactly we as humans got so addicted to plastic. I was curious to learn what life was like before garbage bags, plastic toothbrushes, and nylon clothes, and I wanted to show people how plastic was truly considered a miracle material. It's easy to see our situation today and say plastic is bad, but it's more nuanced than that. It's always important to know how we got here in the first place.

Reminder: When on a Cheetah Safari, Don't Exit Your Car
The takeaway from this video is pretty clear, one would think. When visiting a safari park filled with roaming cheetahs, do NOT exit your vehicle to get a closer look. That's exactly what one family did in this Dutch park, and it plays out almost exactly how you would expect. Luckily, no one was actually harmed. Cheetahs are on the less aggressive side as far as big cats go, but if it had been lions or tigers, the outcome may have been different.
