Survey reveals some lawyers are considering ceasing to practice


NECESSARY measures to contain the Covid-19 pandemic have affected all aspects of Malaysia’s economy, including the legal profession, which have taken a beating over the past few months. The crisis represents an “unprecedented and unexpected setback for the entire legal profession,” says Malaysian Bar president Salim Bashir (pic).

A Bar Council survey titled “The Effects of the Movement Control Order (MCO) on Law Firm Owners of the Malaysian Bar”, which polled 844 respondents from April 10 to 20, showed that a majority of respondents (54.1%) were confident that they would not need to make any changes to their law practices.
