Bar Professional Training Course, 2015
The City Law School
I am keen to help fellow Malaysians who want to know more about the Bar Professional Training Course or the Inns of Court in the UK. I hope to be a useful contact point for Malaysians in pursuing their legal career in Malaysia. Also, if you are visiting Malaysia and would like to know how to experience Malaysia like a local, do drop me a message.
If you have any queries about Malaysia in general, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me. I love meeting new people and I am happy to have a conversation in person or online.
