the United Kingdom & Ireland Malaysian Law Students' Union
WHO WE ARE & WHAT WE DO
Every Malaysian law student studying English law is automatically a member, and KPUM exists to promote their interests.
The United Kingdom & Ireland Malaysian Law Students’ Union or Kesatuan Penuntut Undang-Undang Malaysia di UK dan Ireland (KPUM) has acted as an umbrella body for all Malaysians studying English law for over 20 years. Established officially in 1979, we have constantly aimed to promote the interests of our members, which come from over thirty institutions in the UK and Malaysia, including universities and bar schools.
KPUM serves as a platform for students to meet with potential employers and future colleagues through events such as our annual Law Careers Convention, Mooting Competition, and the Legal Academy initiative. We aim to provide students with information about prospective employers and law firms as well as stimulate intellectual curiosity and knowledge about Malaysia's local legal scene.
The Union is recognised by the Malaysian Bar Council which has always shown tremendous interest and support in our activities and more importantly, in our members. We are also proud to have had His Royal Highness the late Sultan Azlan Shah, the Sultan of Perak who was also the previous Lord President, head of the Malaysian Judiciary, as our Royal Patron for the past 17 years.
