KL Bar Conveyancing Practice Committee had successfully organised a Hi-Tea and Get-together event on 25.01.2011. The event was held at the Annexe Gallery, Central Market, Kuala Lumpur and was attended by about 100 Conveyancing Lawyers and invited guests. Attending guests included the Director, Deputy Directors and Senior Officers of the related government agencies namely from the Wilayah Land Office, Selangor Land Office, Inland Revenue Board of Malaysia and the Valuation Office of Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur. This event was the first event ever held especially for the Conveyancing Lawyers.
