Law Scholarships in Malaysia

1) What is Law?

Law is the study of rules that state what we are allowed to do. These rules were designed to ensure everyone’s rights are protected and everyone can live peacefully.

Law degrees are generally 3 years long. However, to be able to practise law in Malaysia you’ll need to pass your CLP exam which is approximately 9 months long and another 9 months of internship because you are a qualified lawyer.

Besides that, studying Law is intellectually challenging and stimulating as every case is different. You’ll also be able to gain practical skill sets that allow you to apply in your everyday life such as interpreting contracts or legal documents with complex language.

2) What You Need To Know About Law Scholarships

  • Scholarships are usually offered by institutions providing the course
  • Most are merit-based with no interview required
