Date: 19 September 2023
Dear Members of the Kuala Lumpur Bar,
The Bar Council Legal Aid Centre (Kuala Lumpur) provides legal representation to the impecunious and unrepresented Malaysians and foreigners in the areas of criminal law, employment law, family law and Syariah Law. The Centre also manages the assignment of files, claims and training on behalf of the National Legal Aid Foundation or better known as Yayasan Bantuan Guaman Kebangsaan (“YBGK”).
As of 14 September 2023, there are sixty (60) files under the YBGK scheme which have yet to be assigned. We would like to invite Members of the Kuala Lumpur Bar to adopt these files.
Kindly be informed that the assignment of the files is on a first-come, first-served basis. The secretariat will only inform lawyers who have successfully been assigned the file.
Please be reminded that the adoption of YBGK files is only open for the lawyers who have successfully concluded Part 3 of the YBGK Training.
For any inquiries or concerns on any of the above matters, please do not hesitate to contact the Bar Council Legal Aid Centre (Kuala Lumpur) Secretariat at 03-2691 1122/ 03- 2691 1123 or email us at email@example.com.
