Candidate Watch Campaign: Do not throw that ballot paper away!

The Bar Council Elections takes place every year during the month of November. The purpose of the Elections is to elect members who will sit in Council and tasked under the Legal Profession Act to manage the affairs of the Malaysian Bar and to carry out various functions as specified under the Act. Candidates for the Elections are nominated by at least 3 members – you should have received your nomination papers by now! By early November, Bar Council will announce the candidates and ballot papers are sent to members for them to vote. The question is how many members even bother to vote? Out of 13,000 members, Bar Council only received the returned ballot papers in the region of 3,000. Most members, when asked about the Elections, do not know how to participate as they have no clue who to elect, or who is best to represent their interests in Bar Council. More often than not, the ballot papers end up in the dustbin. With this in mind, the Kuala Lumpur Bar Young Lawyers Committee wi

Press Statement

Climate Change and Addressing Global Warming The Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee (KLBC) has felt it timely to join the chorus of the environmentally-conscious and those who care, in expressing serious concern over greenhouse gas concentrations (derived from excessive carbon emission) through industries, transportation, deforestation and settlements, which by slow degrees are surely altering the chemistry of the Earth’s atmosphere, if left unattended by the world’s nations. The net effect of this problem is enough to cause climate change and its severe environmental fallout. Given that this is an area of international concern, already felt and amplified through extreme weather conditions such as rising sea levels, inundation, storm surge, erosion and other coastal hazards, it is not surprising that The United Nations has recently warned that tens of millions of people living in the world’s biggest cities are highly exposed to “mega disaster.” In view of the magnitude of the pro

The Kuala Lumpur Young Lawyers Committee (“KLYLC”) organised a visit to Parliament on 11 th October 2010, which saw 8 of its members attending the third session of the 12 th Parliament i.e. Lai Chee Hoe, Syahredzan Johan, Johnson Lim, Chan Kit Keong, Kenneth Wong, Joanne Leong, Johana Rosli and Joachim Leong. Despite being informed that the session commences only at 10 am, we enthusiastically gathered as early as 8 am on a Monday morning for fears that there will be inadequate parking. After feasting on food and drinks at the Parliament’s cafeteria located at the 1 st Floor, we then made our way to the public gallery in the House. Member of Parliment (“MP”) for Rembau, YB Khairy Jamuluddin was one of the earliest to arrive, and very kindly took the time to greet each and every one of us personally, where he subsequently ran through the agenda for the day with us. Parliament convened exactly at 10.05 am with a short recital of the doa selamat , followed by the start of Question
