Decision on law exam dates only after MCO

The CLP is the qualifying examination for admission to the three Bars in Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak.

PETALING JAYA: The Legal Profession Qualifying Board will only decide when to hold the Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP) examination once the government lifts the movement control order (MC) imposed to check the spread of Covid-19.

Board director Jamhirah Ali said they knew that students’ preparation for the exam may have been affected by the MCO.

“The announcement of CLP examination dates will only be made by the board after the MCO deadline expires,” she said in a statement on the board’s website.

Jamhirah also advised students to check the portal from time to time for updates on the examination dates.

About 2,000 candidates sit for the annual examination which is held in July.

The CLP is the qualifying examination for admission to the three Bars in Malaya, Sabah and Sarawak.
