ADMISSION SPEECH FOR
CHEW HAO NAN 18-52-01/2015
NOVEMBER 27, 2015 at 9 AM
If it pleases you, My Lady
Alex Chang Huey Wah, appear for the Petitioner, and my learned friends representing the Attorney General, the Bar Council and the KL Bar Committee have already been introduced earlier. However, for Petitioner No 4, Mr Muhendran Suppiah will appear for Selangor Bar instead of the KL Bar.
Before I move the court for the usual Orders, allow me a few minutes to say a few words about Your Petitioner.
Your Petitioner is the Eldest of three children of Mr & Mrs Chew Hee Leong. His father, a businessman who is running a stationary business while his mother is a home maker. They are both here in court today My Lady.
Both his parents are proud of the fact that your petitioner is going to be the first lawyer in the family.
The Petitioner was born in 1992 in Hong Kong and moved to Malaysia when he was 12 years old. He told me that at 12 years old, he was not old enough to know who Dato Jacky Chan was.
My Lady, from the tender age, your Petitioner has always believed in giving back to the community, and he volunteered to help the destitute and the poor. During his studies, the Petitioner has been actively involved in social works. The Petitioner received an Awarded from Taylor’s University College in 2008 for his service to the community. The aim of his project was to collect information on the difficulties faced by the modern society and to propose some effective solutions for them.
Through this project, The Petitioner shadowed a farmer and went to the rice farm to understand the process of rice-growing and the reasons of losses post-harvest at the farm. YP confessed one day he should resign as a lawyer, he will be an excellent farmer.
I humbly think that to study the poor and destitute he should study the life of lawyers…
The Petitioner was awarded a Bachelor of Laws, from the University of Northumbria in the United Kingdom July 2013.
The Petitioner then continued his education at the Brickfields Asia College and obtained his Certificate in Legal Practice.
The Petitioner commenced his pupillage in the chambers of my learned and good friend Dato’ Davis Yee Fei Churn at Messrs Davis & Low.
On this special day, the Petitioner would like to take this opportunity to thank his father, Mr Chew Hee Leong Madam Chan Sau Fong for their constant support and guidance throughout his life.
The Petitioner would also like to thank his brothers, Mr. Chew Xing Nan and Mr. Chew Zhuo nan, for being there.
The Petitioner would like to credit all his good fortunes to his family, without whom, the Petitioner would never have made it through law school. The Petitioner is forever grateful that his family loves him unconditionally.
The Petitioner would also like to thank his master, Dato’ Davis Yee Fei Churn for the valuable opportunity given to him and would also like to express his gratitude to all the associates of Messrs. Davis & Low.
Your Petitioner told me that an important thing which he learned from Dato’ Davis Yee which he will remember always is that the key to be a great lawyer is hardwork. He learnt that if someone does not invest in time on reading different material to prepare for a matter in court, the result would be disastrous, no matter how smart he is.
I verily believe that Your Petitioner is a fit and proper person to be admitted and enrolled as an Advocate and Solicitor of this Honourable Court all the papers are in order and there are no objections to this Petition. Accordingly, I humbly pray for an Order in terms as prayed in the Petition.
ORDER FROM THE HONOURABLE COURT
May I seek leave from this Honourable Court to robe Your Petitioner as My learned friend Dato’ Davis Yee Fei Churn Your the pupil master have to attend a family emergency.
