The Convention on the horizon

After intense planning and organising for the last 4 weeks or so, the Young Lawyers Convention has dawned upon us at the Bar.

Vince Chong has stepped up and took ownership of the project, together with Ms Kamala, the Executive Officer of NYLC of the Bar.

With less than 48 hours to go, before the Convention starts, we can only do so much the next day or so. Much last minute planning is on-going behind the scene.

Unfortunately the on-going detention and arrests of people behind BERSIH is depressing, not because of BERSIH, but the fact that the Law has been severely abused and used by the Government for their own means. Arbitrary declaration that BERSIH shirts are illegal without proper source of the Law is a clear sign of Dictatorial means of administration.

But arrest or no arrest, the Young Lawyers Convention 2011 goes on.
