Coffee Table Book On The History Of The Kuala Lumpur Bar

Circular No: 089/2020
Date: 3 August 2020

Dear Members of the Kuala Lumpur Bar,

The Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee is embarking on a project to come up with a Coffee Table Book on the history of the Kuala Lumpur Bar to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of the Kuala Lumpur Bar in 2022.

As members may be aware, the Kuala Lumpur Bar was established on 1 July 1992 after the Legal Profession Act was amended in 1992 to allow lawyers practising in Kuala Lumpur to establish its own Bar to be known as the “Kuala Lumpur Bar”. Prior to that and upon Kuala Lumpur being made a Federal Territory on 1 February 1974, lawyers practising within the Federal Territory were deemed to be members of the Selangor State Bar pursuant to S.68(3) of the Legal Profession Act.

We are looking for members to contribute to the Coffee Table Book and/or volunteers to assist in doing research, interviewing senior members, writing, editing, etc.

If you have any contribution to make or wish to volunteer to assist in the said project, please email the KL Bar Secretariat at

Hope we can all come together and make this Coffee Table Book a memorable book for everyone.

Thank you.

Warm Regards,
