ASASI Internship Programme
Law students nowadays would mostly be on the lookout for big name firms, viewing the legal profession solely as a money-making platform. Now this isn’t wrong, but one must remember Section 42(1) of the Legal Profession Act 1976, which clearly states that the role of the Malaysian Bar (and all it’s members, i.e. lawyers) is to “uphold the cause of justice… without fear or favour”. As readers of the law, we are not only given a statutory duty to uphold justice, rule of law and condemn oppression, but we also have a higher moral obligation to actively promote these values in whatever way we can.
One can also look forward to the very interesting weekly sessions (outside office hours) organized for participants – ASASI+. We will be inviting different human rights lawyers / activists to speak on their experiences within this area of law, and there will be gameshops organized to provide a hands-on application and exposure to related issues.
