Everyday brings a chance for you to draw in a breath, kick off your shoes, and dance.

"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening.
and Live like it's heaven on earth"

William Purkey


legal attachment and chambering at KL?

I am sure most of you guys (who are not from KL) will be struggling to choose for a suitable firm for your legal attachment or chambering at KL!

First of all, it is important to know what is your interest in any specific area of law at the first place. There are three main limbs in the law practice namely corporate, litigation, and conveyancing. Of course there are different other specification such as Intellectual Property, Banking etc. I did some research before and make a list of law firms that you may want to go:-

  1. Skrine (BF)
  2. Shearn Delamore & Co (BF) 
  3. ZICOlaw (BF)
  4. Kadir Andri and Partners (MBF)
  5. Zul Rafique and; Partners (MBF)
  6. Wong & Partners (MBF)
  7. Albar & Partners (MF)
  8. Adnan Sundra & Law (MF)
  9. Rahmat Lim & Partners (MF)
  10. Raslan Loong (MF)
  11. Jeff Leong Poon & Wong (MF)
  12. Cheang & Ariff (MF)
BF: big firm
MBF: medium big firm
MF: medium firm

What is corporate work all about? Based on my three months legal attachment experiences in a corporate firm. You will be most likely be assigned to do Due Diligence, opinion writing, drafting agreements, attend company AGM/EGM, scheme of arrangement course papers preparation, takeover and mergers agreements, prepare some due diligence planning memorandum, drafting the proposal based on the Bursa Listing Requirements and any other relevant policy and law. I love corporate so much because you are exposed to many new area that is totally unrelated to law. Say if we are preparing the documents of a theme park, you have to study the animals characteristics. You have to read about the astronomy, technology, hello kitty and everything else you can think off! :D


  1. Lee Hishammudin Allen Glendhill (BF)
  2. Shook Lin and Bok (BF)
  3. Shearn Delamore & Co (BF)
  4. ZICO law (BF)
  5. Skrine (BF)
  6. Zul Rafique (MBF)
  7. Kadir Andri and Partners (MBF) 
  8. Malik Imtiaz Sarwar 
  9. Thomas Phillip
  10. Tommy Thomas 
  11. Messers Wong Kian Kheong 
  12. Karpal Singh and Co
I've never really experience the real litigation. But I saw my friends are doing research and transcribing. There are some review of Skrine and Lee Hisammudin  (LHAG) based on Elyse experience when she had a summer break from Cambridge. She spent 3 weeks in LHAG and Skrine. She did not have much legal knowledge at that time and doing some research or transcribing or reading case files.

Also, there are other concerns that might take into your considerations.


  • If you are opting to take LRT instead of driving, then you may concern some firms that located nearby the LRT station such as Shearn, LHAG, Kadir Andir etc
  • If you are driving, then you can go wherever you want!
  • For the non-KL person, it is highly recommended to buy a GPS/Garmin/Papago to survive in KL. I still don't understand why can I sesat in KL with all the latest electronic gadgets ftw.
  • Okay, I have not much advice on this because I was lucky to stay with my relatives throughout my attachment programme, remember to find some place with many many food! ;d
  • If you are going for attachment programme, normally big firms doesn't pay much or even zero pay. That's why I became so kiamsiap after my attachment!!
  • If you are going for chambering, and if money is your concern-then you may concern Wong & Partners, Thomas Phillip, Rahmat Lim, KAAP etc (But I think you need not to concern too much since we are still learning)
  • Medium big or big firms have normally more attachment and chambering students. And the after work lifestyle is really happening.
  • But medium firms and small firms have another close relationship between each other like a family! It has less company politics i think?

The experiences are differs from person to person, the most important thing in your attachment and chambering programme is your own attitude and initiation. Also, pray hard to have a gooood master and mentor who are willing to teach you and guide you :)

Please refer to interview tips.




"...Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us, or we find it notThe best of beauty is a finer charm than skill in surfaces, in outlines, or rules of art can ever teach, namely, a radiation from the work   of art of human character, — a wonderful expression through stone, or canvas, or musical sound, of the deepest and simplest attributes of our nature, and therefore most intelligible at last to those souls which have these attributes. In the sculptures of the Greeks, in the masonry of the Romans, and in the pictures of the Tuscan and Venetian masters, the highest charm is the universal language they speak. A confession of moral nature, of purity, love, and hope, breathes   from them all. That which we carry to them, the same we bring back more fairly illustrated in the memory…”
