We are delighted to inform you that the Bar Council Malaysia will be hosting its flagship event, the International Malaysia Law Conference (IMLC) 2023, from 11-13 July 2023 held at Shangri-La Hotel Kuala Lumpur back to back with POLA Conference this year. It is the signature event of the Malaysian Bar for 2020 and certainly not to be missed. 


Our theme for IMLC 2023 — “Navigating The Present, Exploring The Future” which involves 30 breakout sessions and 4 plenary sessions will help our members explore where they are at and encourage them to fully leverage on the opportunities created by the challenges of a demanding present and future. We want our lawyers to be inspired and empowered and ready to embrace the transformations in the evolving legal landscape and equip them to tap into and harness the potential of expanding domestic and global markets.
