To Members of the Malaysian Bar
Expanding the Horizons of Your Practice:
Malaysian Bar Legal Market Visits to China and Vietnam (June to August 2019)
The Malaysian Bar is pleased to organise legal market visits to China and Vietnam — in collaboration with three bar associations — throughout June to August 2019, with the aim of providing Members of the Bar with insights on expanding their practice horizons beyond Malaysia.  
The official visits are specifically designed to provide Malaysian lawyers with networking opportunities for international business development with companies, investors and legal professionals from these two countries.
The Malaysian Bar and its counterparts from China and Vietnam are working on creating a platform whereby participating law firms can enter into formal working relationships with their peers via Framework Agreements for legal co-operation.  In our visits to Guangxi, Guangdong and Shenzhen in 2018, a total of 187 co-operation agreements were inked between Malaysian and Chinese firms.
There is no participation fee for the legal market visits.  Participants pay their own costs, including for international and local travel, visas (where applicable), accommodation, incidentals and other associated expenses.  Members should only make travel bookings after their participation has been confirmed by the Bar Council.  Please take careful note of the terms and conditions below, before registering.
The dates for the legal market visits are as follows:
Destination Date Host Registration Deadline
Dalian, CHINA 18 June 2019
Dalian Lawyers Association 27 May 2019
Hainan, CHINA 22 July 2019
Hainan Lawyers Association 10 June 2019
Hanoi, VIETNAM 9 Aug 2019
Vietnam Bar Federation 30 June 2019
A detailed programme will be provided to confirmed participants in due course.
