Kuala Lumpur Bar

Established on July 1, 1992 at a general meeting of advocates and solicitors practising in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur held under section 68(4) of the Legal Profession Act 1976.

Before that date, practitioners in Kuala Lumpur were members of the Selangor Bar, which was later called the Selangor and Federal Territory Bar on Kuala Lumpur becoming a Federal Territory in 1974.

Section 68(4), Legal Profession Act 1976 Members practising in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur shall be entitled to establish a separate bar for the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur to be known as the Kuala Lumpur Bar. The decision to have a separate bar shall be made by a majority vote of the members present at a general meeting called for this purpose.

The Kuala Lumpur Bar official website features admission, pupillage, calendar of events, CLE, directories, court listings, notices, legal practice, legal aid, publications and public awareness.
