The Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP) is a 9-month long post-graduate course and examination taken by foreign law graduates and graduates to become a qualified lawyer in Malaysia. The examination is conducted by the Legal Profession Qualifying Board of Malaysia and is governed by the Legal Profession Act 1976. The Board allows degree holders from shortlisted universities in the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand to sit for the examination. Like all law graduates, CLP graduates must proceed to read in chambers or better known as chambering. After completing nine (9) months of chambering, the student may finally be called to the bar and become a qualified lawyer.
The Bachelor of Laws is an undergraduate degree in law (or a first professional degree in law, depending on jurisdiction) originating in England and most common law jurisdictions as the degree which allows a person to become a lawyer. The standard degree is 3 years to complete. It can form the first major step towards qualifying for practice as a solicitor or barrister, but also represents appropriate preliminary training for a range of other careers in which legal knowledge is an asset.
These transfer programs allow students to start pursuing a UK law degree locally before transferring to a leading partner university in the United Kingdom to read an undergraduate LLB degree.
