Powerpointless, Not Pointless On 21st July 2007, the Multimedia University School of Law organized a Law Awareness Day within their campus for their law students with the assistance of the Malacca Young Lawyers and Chambering Pupils Committee. Five prominent members of the Malacca Bar were invited to speak on their life as lawyers in their respective fields of practice.

The 2nd to 4th year students were already anticipating an “interesting” talk from our panel of speakers for the day and Wong Fook Meng started the talk by giving an overview of the transition from law school to legal practice and the challenges facing a “young” practitioner. Chee Kong Chi was then invited to speak about life as a corporate lawyer. With his vast experience, he astounded even the lawyers in attendance about what corporate legal practice entails. Phrases like Reverse Take Over (RTO) and Mergers and Acquisition (M&A) would have baffled many, but Chee advised the students that beyond the conundrum of legal terms, “soft skills” were equally as important for a lawyer.

Malacca Bar Idol Nite at the Melaka Charity Nite

contributed by Pierre Lim and Desmond Ho

Idol on A RollWhat do the Bee Gees, Willie Nelson, Everly Brothers and a Mandarin rendition of a Chinese nursery rhyme, “Father Is Not Home”, have in common? Why, nothing of course! Except that they were all sung by our very own Bar Idols and members of the Malacca Bar on the first ever Malacca Bar Idol competition in conjunction with the West Coast Charity Night jointly organized by 4 state Young Lawyers Committees.

The fund-raiser, attended by more than 110 people which was organised in Malacca together with the Liason, Charity and Welfare Sub- Committee of the Malacca Bar in aid of the Pusat Kanak-kanak Terencat Akal Bahagia witnessed a Malaccan version of the Popular TV Show American Idol, featuring our very own panel of the famous threesome, Simon Ng Kong Peng, Randy Desmond Ho and Paula Fiona Tan. It was an evening to remember as our Bar Idol hopefuls belted out tune after tune of tone-challenged popular hits much to the delight of the diners. And that’s not all folks. We had a “slave auction” in which a rather sporting member of the Malacca Bar volunteered his “Man-Friday” services for the night to the highest bidder, all in the name of good fun and charity. Our Man-Friday did not only raise funds from the auction but when his Master for the night instructed him to sing, he was paid to stop singing candidly by another Bar member.
