Hello Agila,

The Certificate in Legal Practice is actually seen as a fourth and final year of study in your degree. Once obtained you can pursue your career as a lawyer by first, finishing your Bar Exam and then registering for a qualified license after you successfully passed the exam. So clarification, the degree in Law in usually taken before your Certificate in Legal Practice. You now take a Bar Exam and register for a qualified license. 

For more information, please have a look at Law in Malaysia

Hope this answers your question and good luck!

Hello Hanna, 

There is a Maritime Lawyer position in Malaysia as there are such law firms available in the country. In order to become one, you must complete the following: 

1. Complete an undergraduate degree in the recommended studies: marine studies, law, government, economics 

2. Take the Law School Administration Test (LSAT) 

3. Get into a Law School and study Maritime Law: it is recommended that you enroll in the specialty courses to become a Maritime Lawyer (law, marine insurance, injured employee compensation, marine pollution and international law)

4. Finally, you must take a bar exam and apply for your licensure as a Maritime Lawyer

However, please insure that you are committed in studying law as it is complicated and time-consuming course. It is not an easy degree to obtain and takes years of trial and error to achieve. Do refer to How to Become a Maritime Lawyer for more information. 

Hoping this advice is helpful to you and good luck!

Hi Nur Syafiqah Qistina,

For law courses, you must have first achieved at least 5 Credits in your SPM. On top of that, if you wish to pursue a degree in Law, then you will need to achieve a minimum of 3 Cs in your A-Levels or STPM, or any other equivalent qualification.

You can read our comprehensive guide on studying Law by clicking here.

Besides that, you can also view a full list of universities offering Law by clicking here. Often, the entry requirements differ according to university so you may check there.

Hope this helps!

Hi Aman Lew Ka Lock,

Principal passes refer to the grade; in this case, principal passes are grade C and above. Furthermore, 'one sitting' means that you completed the exams without repeating them; that is, you passed them in the first time that you took the exams.

Hope this clears it up!

Dear Nurul Anis,

While we do agree with you that to become a lawyer you'll require good memory skills - nothing should stop you if you are passionate enough. 

Since you are also interested in Communications studies, there are few universities that offer Foundation course en route to a Bachelor in Communications such as IUKL, IUMW and BAC and many more. You can read the full info for this course by following this link.

Hope this helps!

Hi Aifa Najiha,

The main difference between Asasi and Matrikulasi is the pathway of the programmes. Asasi is usually for those who know exactly what and where they want to study, as you would continue your degree in the same university. Matrikulasi, on the other hand, gives you more options on where to continue your degree as well as a bigger variation of subjects.

If you are set on pursuing law, then it is not recommended for you to do Matrikulasi as you will be studying other subjects that may be unrelated to law, and you will have to maintain high results. It is much better for you to go for Asasi or STPM, as it will directly focus on the subjects required for law, and you will have better opportunities when going into your degree.

If you want to compare them side by side, you can see a full comparison here: https://afterschool.my/compare/stpm-vs-matrikulasi-vs-asasi.

Besides that, you can read more detailed info about Asasi and Matrikulasi courses.

Hope this helps, and please feel free to ask us further questions if you need more help!

Hey there Jainudin,

1) Well the fees for the Marketing and Law degree of Aberystwyth University in the UK would cost so much more in comparison to studying it here in Malaysia. Brickfields Asis College (BAC) has a collaboration with the university and offers a 3+0 programme. This means that you will complete 3 years of studies at BAC while obtaining your qualification at Aberystwyth University. It costs RM20,000 per year

2) There are no internal scholarships at the moment but you can apply for external ones offered by foundations and other companies. Browse through the list of scholarships here (https://afterschool.my/scholarship). As for loans you can apply for PTPTN or PPBU.

Hope this helps you and if you have any more query, just ask away :)
