CANCELLATION NOTICE

In light of the developing COVID-19 outbreak, we have come to the decision to cancel LCC 2020 for both the UK and MY edition . However, we will be having a series of virtual events soon. Stay tuned to our social media pages for more updates! 

The health and safety of our participants remains our number one priority, and at this point in time we have decided that it is in the best interests of our members to cancel the Convention . 


We would like to apologise to our participants for any inconvenience caused, particularly those who have already registered to attend the event. We thank you for your continued support, and we trust that you will understand the gravity of the current situation, and the reasons underpinning this decision.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact Melissa at melissa.tan@kpum.org / Ginnie at ginnie.lim.kpum@gmail.com or drop us a message on Facebook. Thank you for your understanding.

what is THE Law Career Convention?

It's back - and with a twist! Our annual Law Career Convention makes a comeback this year, but across two countries over the span of the next few months. We are pleased to announce the return of the UK Edition of LCC, and also a brand-new Malaysian Edition coming your way in Summer 2020!

The annual Law Career Convention (“LCC”) serves to bridge the gap between Malaysian law firms, legal education providers and legal professionals on one hand and, on the other hand, Malaysian law students pursuing their studies in the UK. Through exhibitions, panel discussions, exclusive networking sessions and workshops, KPUM endeavours to empower and support participants in enhancing their employability and skills development.

UK EDITION
The UK Edition will be an all-exclusive event with Shearn Delamore & Co, where participants will be given the opportunity to learn from and network with the firm’s partners. BPTC students who submit their CVs may also qualify for a pupillage interview and/or the opportunity to attend a corporate dinner with Shearn Delamore & Co.

MALAYSIA EDITION
More info about this all-new edition of LCC will be made available closer to summer this year! Keep your eyes peeled on this page for further updates.

Theme

This year, LCC revolves around the theme: “Unravelling the Legal Industry”. It highlights KPUM's constant efforts in breaking down legal topics into its essentials for our student members, as well as providing guidance to all participants about the various job opportunities available in the market. Through these efforts, our participants may gain valuable insight into the paths that lay ahead and develop their commercial acumen.
