Admission to the Malaysian Bar (Long Call) Speech
Admission Speech of Miss Nur Azhan Binti Ahmad Pauzi as an Advocate and Solicitor, High Court of Malaya.
Date: 23rd July 2010
If it pleases you My Lord,
I, Kenneth Lye, appear for the Petitioner, and my learned friends representing the relevant bodies that have been introduced earlier.
Petitioner was born in Kuala Terengganu on a remarkable date of 14th August and is a first child to a loving couple Encik Ahmad Pauzi bin Awang Hamat and Puan Zawiyah Binti Sidi Abdul Latiff. Petitioner’s father is a retired army officer and is now running a construction business while her mother is housewife.
Your Petitioner read laws at the Universiti Teknologi Mara, Shah Alam and is planning to further her studies in Syariah Law by taking Advanced Diploma in Syariah Law (DSLA).
Allow me a minute or two to let all concerned to know some secrets behind that beautiful face of your petitioners. She was not impressed by LA Law, Alley MacBeal and the likes. She is a great admirer of Sheila Majid, therefore her first ambition was to be a singer. Besides singing she also wanted to climb Mt Kinabalu but since she has yet to find time to do that she is contented with rock climbing at the moment.
Your Petitioner had more than one pupil master, she eventually chose to complete her pupillage under the tutelage of my learned friend Alex Chang Huey Wah Esq from Messrs. Alex Chang & Co who is the Author of the Book Companies Winding Up Handbook, an expert in winding up, injunction, shareholders’ dispute and debt recovery. As a pupil of Alex Chang Esq, she had a great time learning and exploring corporate law.
Her acquaintance with Chang Esq started when she was on ‘attachment’ and was involved in the research of his book, “Footprints of a Judge’s Journey Through Mother Earth based on the judgements of the late Dato’ Vincent Ng” which was published in 2009. Thereafter Your Petitioner found the period reading in the chambers of Mr. Alex Chang as interesting, very challenging and this experience gives her strength to take on new challenges. Looking back, she told me that an important thing she learned from Mr Chang which will be guiding her for some time to come, is that life is a never ending learning process.
On this memorable and remarkable day for Miss Nur Azhan Binti Ahmad Pauzi, Your Petitioner, she seizes this opportunity to record her appreciation to her parents Encik Ahmad Pauzi bin Awang Hamat and Puan Zawiyah Binti Sidi Abdul Latiff for the endless tender love and care, moral and financial support.
Big thanks for her younger sisters and brothers, teachers, lecturers and friends for their prayers and guidance. She likes to use two big words here, ‘eternal gratefulness’ to her Master, Alex Chang Esq, the best teacher she has encountered thus far, and to all the other masters for their endless helping hands, teachings, experience and opportunities granted to Your Petitioner. Your Petitioner is also indebted to her best friend, Encik Airol Irwan Bin Limin for sharing her joys and sorrows during the studies and pupilage. And not to forget all the colleagues for their helping hands.
I believe that Your Petitioner’s papers are in order and the relevant bodies have no objections. Wherefore I humbly pray that Petitioner be admitted and enrolled as an Advocate and Solicitor of High Court of Malaya. I am obliged.
I seek leave from this Honourable Court to invite Mr. Alex Chang Your Petitioner’s pupil master to robe Your Petitioner.
