Session Abstract: In the University of Malaya, elements of professional conduct and legal ethics are infused into core courses taught through lectures and tutorials which are conducted based on 'socratic' method. Recognizing the importance of clinical programs to achieve the necessary integration of substantive law and professional skills, values and legal ethics in its students, the University embarked on clinical legal education with the establishment of the Faculty of Law Legal Aid Clinic. By the establishment of the Legal Aid Clinic, the University aims not only to provide service to the community but also to expose its students to a broad range of lawyering competencies such as interviewing and advising clients, fact investigation, extensive application of problem solving skills and a deeper understanding and appreciation of professional conduct and legal ethics through servicing real client. The Legal Aid Clinic has also established a collaboration with the Government Legal Aid Department which allows its students to be exposed to wider range of clients and cases.
