Dear Members of the KL Bar and Pupils-In-Chambers,
The Practice Reform Committee (“PRC”) was set up to review and propose reforms to existing laws, rules and rulings regulating practice. During the last term, this committee (formerly known as the Firms & Group Practice Reform Committee) focused on the following areas:
Legal Profession (Publicity) Rules 2001.
Legal Profession (Group Law Practice) Rules 2018.
Bar Council Rulings including those regulating Advocates & Solicitors acting as company secretary, registered patent, trade mark, industrial design and/or geographical indication agent.
The PRC intends to continue the work done and complete the projects on foot in relation to the areas above. We will also look to new areas, in particular the use of Information Technology in legal practice and other areas identified by members.
