Dear Sirs/Madam,

I'm an ICSA holder and has been a practising company secretary for 10 years in both private and public listed companies. In order for me to be part of the senior management, it is insufficient to be merely a company secretary.  As such, I wish to take up a law course to enhance my career.  I don't intend to be a practising lawyer either in any legal firm or self-employed, I just wish to be a legal adviser cum company secretary in commercial corporation.    

I write to seek your advice/view pertaining to the following matters:-

1.  The University of Malaya is providing a law course entitled "Bachelor of Jurisprudence (BOL)" externally.  My question is what is the difference between LLB and BOL.

2.  How would employers view this qualification (ie. BOL)?

Thank you in advance for your advice.

Warmest Regards,

I would advise you to seek clarification from University of Malaya, and to look carefully at the Course Modules for details.

It is good that you have the aspiration to upgrade yourself, but remember that different Management has different needs.

I think they view it through binoculars. You must first ask the Malaysian Bar association if this degree satisfies the requirements for practice. That way you will know if it is a core law degree. Okay
