An academic delegation from four City, University of London Schools, led by City’s President, Professor Sir Paul Curran, travelled to Malaysia in May 2018 to promote dialogue between City and key regional stakeholders and identify opportunities for international partnerships.

Professor Elaine Fahey, Associate Dean (International) at The City Law School and Professor Nigel Duncan were part of City’s Strategic South East Asia delegation, which included visits to Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.

The academics travelled to meet the Dean and staff at the Faculty of Law, University of Malaya, which was ranked 46th in Asia in 2018, to discuss student mobility, clinical legal education and possible areas of collaboration.

The delegation also met with the director of the Asia-Europe Institute (also based at the University of Malaya) and the Faculty of Law at Multimedia University (Cyberjaya campus), following a recent visit to The City Law School.

Professors Fahey and Duncan were joined by alumna Mary-Ann Ooi Suan Kim, barrister and head of her Kuala Lumpur-based law firm OS Kim & Associates, in a dinner with the Inns of Court Malaysia at the Palace of Justice in Putrajaya.

Professor Fahey said: “We really enjoyed joining the University delegation in its strategic visit to South East Asia. The City Law School received incredible support from outstanding alumna Mary-Ann Ooi Suan Kim. We look forward to working with her and the Inns of Court Malaysia on providing judicial training and continuing professional development.”
