FAQs about Studying a Law Degree in Malaysia

What is Law?

Law is a system of rules that govern what we can do and cannot do.

The field of Law is important as it helps raise issues pertaining to justice, equality and fairness to keep the society in check. This field is also relevant in businesses, as it keeps business proceedings fair and honest.

A Degree in Law will give you a strong foundation to prepare you for a professional career as a Lawyer. You will build relevant professional skills that will allow you to represent your future clients effectively.

What are the minimum entry requirements for a Law Degree?

To pursue a Degree in Law, the typical entry requirements are:

You may also need to have at least 5 credits (C and above) at SPM, O-Level or equivalent. A credit in Malay Language will allow you to be exempted from the Bahasa Malaysia Qualifying Examination. A pass in English is also needed.

That said, the entry requirements may vary depending on the university, so be sure to do your research!

What is your education pathway if you study a Law Degree?

To pursue a Degree in Law, you need to have an SPM qualification or equivalent and a Pre-U qualification. You must also meet the minimum entry requirements of the university.

A Degree in Law is usually 3 years long.

Upon completing a Degree in Law, you will need to pass the Certificate of Legal Practice (CLP), which is roughly 9 months long. Subsequently, you will then need to complete 9 months of “chambering”, which is a form of apprenticeship or internship.

Successful completion will allow you to be “called to the bar” and work as a qualified lawyer.

What are your career prospects with a Law Degree?

Once you complete your chambering, you can consider the following job options:

  • Litigation Lawyer
  • Conveyancing Lawyer
  • In-house Legal Counsel
  • Public Prosecutor
  • Corporate Legal Advisor

What should you consider when choosing a university?

Different students may have different preferences when it comes to choosing the right university. Here are some questions to consider when making a decision.

  • Is the institution’s Law Degree accredited by the Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA)?
  • Is the institution’s Law Degree recognised by the Legal Profession Qualifying Board (LPQB), either as a recognised degree to take the CLP or exempted from CLP?
  • Do you understand the fees of the course, and are the costs affordable to you?
  • Are you comfortable with the location of the university?
  • Have you visited the campus, and do you like the campus environment and facilities?
  • What support services does the institution have to help you in and beyond university?
