How to become a Lawyer in Malaysia?

Sharing is caring :)

Who is a Lawyer?

Typically, lawyers represent clients in civil or criminal trials and present evidence for their defense. However, on a wider scope; they also advise their clients on their legal rights or obligations and counsel them on the best way to proceed according to their legal circumstances. 

Other than that, lawyers also carry out research on legal issues and draw up legal documents (wills, deeds, contracts, lawsuits and appeals) — they are qualified to interpret laws, regulations, and rulings. 

A lawyer can specialize in many different areas of this profession depending whether it is a public or private law —

Public law (issues that affect the general public or states)

  • Administrative law
  • Constitutional law
  • Criminal law
  • Municipal law
  • International law

Private law (related to the rights and obligations of individuals, families, businesses and small groups )

  • Contract law
  • Tort law
  • Property law
  • Succession law
  • Family law

How to become a Lawyer in Malaysia?

As mentioned by the majority of lawyers and law graduates, becoming a lawyer is definitely not an easy and smooth journey. Here’s the walkthrough of the pathway —

1.Meet the SPM pre-requisite requirements

SPM requirements: Minimum 5Cs

2. Enroll in a recognised Pre-University/Year 12 equivalent program 

The best options for you to pursue a law degree in Malaysia will be a recognised Foundation, STPM, A-Levels, IB and UEC.

3. Graduate with a law degree from an approved university

Most importantly, in taking a law degree, you need to verify that the law degree course is approved by the Legal Profession Qualifying Board Malaysia, or by the Malaysia Bar. Failure to graduate from an approved program will prohibit you from applying to take the Malaysian Bar examinations.

4. Complete a Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP) or Bar Professional Training Course

(BPTC) CLP is known as the Malaysian bar examination; you are only allowed a maximum of 4 attempts at the CLP. Alternatively, BPTC (or previously known as BVC) is a popular option for most Malaysians due to its excellent reputation and job prospects — it is a vocational training course in Europe that law graduates take to be admitted as barristers in England and Wales that can also be admitted as an advocate and solicitor not only in Malaysia but also any commonwealth countries. Passing either one is mandatory to be called to the Bar. 

Take note:  some universities are exempted from CLP.

5. Undergo Pupillage (known as “Chambering”) 

This is a practical training course that lasts nine months. Graduates who are exempted from the CLP may start their pupillage immediately after their degree. During the training period, you will be required to pass all Malaysian Bar examinations and legal aid programs. Upon completion, graduates will be called to the Bar as a fully-qualified lawyer and are allowed to practice independently.

Robotics and Mechatronics Degree in Malaysia

Sharing is caring :)

As more businesses advance their technologies and start to utilise intelligent systems and robotics, mechatronics engineering will continue to be in high demand. Plus, manufacturing businesses are also in need of mechatronics engineers in order to evaluate assembly line efficiency and costs.

It’s clear to see that advanced communications, artificial intelligence, machine learning and augmented reality will be increasingly integrated with mechatronics.

What is Robotics and Mechatronics?

Robotics and mechatronics is the mixture of mechanical and electrical engineering, using computer control systems to make devices more intelligent and more efficient.

Mechatronics: Mechatronics is an essential foundation for the expected growth in automation and manufacturing. It is the best of both worlds where electrical and mechanical realms complement each other to create a good system.

Robotics: Robotics can be considered as part of Mechatronics as it similarly involves these mechanical, electronics and computer engineering fields. It mainly focuses on control, sensory feedback, and information processing. It involves the concept of Programming, Mathematics, Design, Electronics and much more. 

Mathematically, robotics is the subset of mechatronics set. In other words, all robotic systems are mechatronic systems. But, not all mechatronic systems are robotic systems.

While Mechatronics gives you the essential foundation of electrical and mechanical engineering, Robotics is more towards focusing on control, sensory feedback and information processing.

Robotics Invention in Malaysia

In conjunction with the COVID-19, recently Malaysian scientists have come up with a robot called the “MediBot” who will conduct check-ups on coronavirus patients at hospitals in the country, to reduce health workers’ risk of exposure.

Invented by the International Islamic University (UIA)’s Centre for Unmanned Technologies, Medibot is equipped with cameras that can screen temperatures, lessening the need for health workers to come into close contact with contagious patients.

Not only that, in 2019 — a Malaysian company, Robopreneur, successfully activated the country;s first advanced humanoid robot named “ADAM” that is capable of natural-like interaction with humans using voice recognition empowered by artificial intelligence.

Interestingly, the company has also developed robots named “Pepper” who is a robot for information services in professional settings and “NAO V6” who is a service robot in research and education.

What are the Career Opportunities if I study Robotics and Mechatronics?

Robotics Engineer

Working behind the scene, Robotics Engineer is responsible for creating robotic systems that are able to perform human-like duties — to help make jobs safer, easier, and more efficient, particularly in the manufacturing industry. 

Mechanical Design Engineer

On the other hand, Mechanical Design Engineer creates, develops and tests products such as machines, tools and sensors using the principle of physics and mechanics.  They also collect data on prototype performance and supervise the manufacturing process for their designs.

Powertrain Engineer

Powertrain engineers are mechanical engineers that work in the automotive industry. They improve the appearance and performance of engines, the powertrain, electrical components and software in modern vehicles. They are also responsible for making sure that vehicles meet government emissions and safety requirements

Instrumentation Engineer

Instrumentation engineers commonly work as a consultant and offer advice regarding systems, processes and equipment. Other than that, they also write software programs, business proposals and reports on their findings. They specialize in equipment that monitors and controls engineering systems. 

Automation Engineer

Automation engineer’s role including designing, programming, and testing automated machinery. They are typically employed in industries such as car manufacturing or food processing plants, where robots or machines are developed to perform specific functions.

What is Wildlife Science?

Highlighting the importance and usage of ecology and biology, Wildlife Science is all about preservation of endangered species of animals and plants, management of ecosystems, and environmental regulations and policies

Wildlife Science is known as an important discipline that utilises ecological knowledge that provides a balance between the needs of wildlife populations and the needs of society. If you are into animals and the environment, Wildlife Science can give you the opportunity to walk on the path toward pursuing your lifelong goal of helping animals survive and thrive together with humans.

Teamwork & Communication: Other than that, most of the time they will conduct research with other teams in monitoring environmental effects on animal populations. They also will need to partner up with policymakers to put together wildlife management and conservation plans. This is to say, they must be able to listen to others, understand them and express their ideas clearly verbally and in writing.

Critical thinking & Problem Solving: Importantly, they must be able to think critically and draw conclusions from test results and scientific observations. This will help in finding the best solutions to disease, habitat loss and other wildlife threats.

This includes conducting surveys of wildlife populations, implementing wildlife population controls, responding to complaints of wildlife, and educating the public about wildlife issues.

Study Food Science & Nutrition Degree in Malaysia 2021

Sharing is caring :)

What is Food Science & Nutrition?

Simply just like its name, Food Science and Nutrition are often associated with food — but it doesn’t stop there. It involves the process of food from A to Z; from the development and design to the distribution stages and everything in between. Studying Food Science and Nutrition in Malaysia will give you the knowledge of the impacts that food has not only on the human body but also the society. 

Generally, Food Science and Nutrition have different definitions and purposes. Food Science covers the chemical, biological, and physical properties of food in relation to manufacturing, processing, and storage of food products. On the other hand, Nutrition studies the relationship between foods and its effect on an individual’s health such as obesity, malnutrition, food insecurity and nutritional deficiencies.

To put it simply, both are important and they are complementary to each other. Hence, the majority of the universities put them together as one interesting and knowledgeable course for students who want to learn more about food.

What study Food Science & Nutrition?

  • Create healthier communities

Nowadays, people are becoming more conscious of their health condition — everyone is adhering to their diet and they are aware of the ingredients they consume. However, some of these people are unable to tell fiction from facts.

This is to say, studying Food Science and Nutrition will give you the privilege of educating consumers when it comes to food — it becomes your responsibility to encourage the society to eat healthily and be cautious in their daily consumption.

  • Experiment with food
