Guidelines for Filling out Borang 1 – 8 and Flowchart on the process for the filing of Admission documents

Pursuant to a meeting held on 7 December 2017 between the Kuala Lumpur High Court (Appellate & Special Powers Division) [“the RKKK Division”] and the Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee, the Deputy Registrar of the RKKK Division has requested that Borang 1 are to be dated by pupils-in-chambers before e-filing the same (which e-filing has to be done from the office and not via the service bureau which service is no longer available to lawyers). Click here or on the Form below for the guidelines on how to fill out Borang 1 (including all the other Forms i.e. Borang 2 to 8). Please note that Borang 1 and the Affidavit are to be filed separately and not as one document.

Pupils-in-chambers must ensure that they record in the register at the Petition for Admission Counter at the RKKK Division when submitting the 32 copies of their Borang 2 for posting at all the High Courts in Malaya.

A necessary preliminary to obtaining the Practising Certificate is the issue of a Sijil Annual from the Bar Council. The procedure for this is set out at Section 32-34 of the Act.
