On the 21st of February 2020, KPUM held a Firm Tour at the Kuala Lumpur offices of the esteemed law firm, Lee Hishammuddin Allen & Gledhill. The event aimed to provide students with an insight into the firm’s multidisciplinary approach to diverse practice groups.
The firm tour started with an overview of the firm’s multiple practice groups so that participants would gain a better understanding of the reality of legal practice from the perspective of young lawyers themselves. The talk consisted of practitioners from various areas of Dispute Resolution (Employment, International Arbitration, Litigation), Intellectual Property, Corporate as well as Tax, SST and Customs.
Participants were later invited to a tea session with the lawyers who had spoken earlier and had the chance to engage and chat with them informally. This served as a valued opportunity for the student participants to network and to have uninhibited access into the inner workings of the legal career.
The firm tour concluded with a brief tour of the offices, in which participants could have a glimpse of a lawyer's working environment.
We owe many thanks to Lee Hishammuddin Allen & Gledhill for their gracious hospitality in hosting the tour with us. The experience proved to be truly enlightening and a valuable takeaway for the students.
