Professional Legal Education Program in Corporate and Commercial Law for Myanmar Lawyers

From May to July 2017, an exciting new professional legal education program will be run for commercial and corporate lawyers in Myanmar by the University of New South Wales Law Faculty and the Asian Development Bank. 

The course will focus on core skills and areas of practice directly relevant to commercial and corporate law. It will include seminars on essential skills for corporate and commercial lawyers, company law, contracts, and an overview of key commercial transactions. The course will aim to equip lawyers with skills and knowledge vital for a successful commercial legal practice.

We encourage applications from lawyers with no more than 3 years’ experience in commercial and corporate law (regardless of other legal experience such as litigation). We may also accept applications from final year law students who have already undertaken a law internship in a commercial law firm. 

Participants will be selected on the basis of merit and demonstrated career aspiration to practice corporate and commercial law, and to ensure that the class includes a diverse group of participants. The organisers reserve the right to ensure equitable distribution of places amongst participants and select participants at their sole discretion.
