director programme

What is the Shadow Director Programme?

To allow potential nominees for election to have some exposure to the work in the relevant department, to ask any questions or to have a more direct conversation with the incumbent director. Please refer to the additional rules for the scope of what is expected from Director/Deputy Director(s).

Why the Shadow Director Programme?

To ensure that regardless of the final pool of nominees at election, the handover process is smoother and more efficient, virtual or otherwise. It also allows for the nominees who have taken part in the mentoring programme to think more practically about what they would like to bring to KPUM in their year.

How does the Shadow Director Programme work?

Each director is limited to 2 mentees. All applications will be made through the application form below, and will require a CV and short paragraphs to 2 questions. The President's Office will be overseeing the whole process, and will be in charge of screening the candidates. Directors will have discretion to input their opinions on candidates.

Who can join the Shadow Director Programme?

All current and prospective members of KPUM are eligible to apply. This includes Malaysian students reading UK law in the UK, Ireland and Malaysia.
