Thirty years of ex­cel­lence

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Higher Education -

“A BIG thank you to ATC prin­ci­pal and chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer Dr Danny Choong, all my lec­tur­ers and class­mates for their kind en­cour­age­ment dur­ing the whole pe­riod of my de­gree. I could not have pulled this off with­out them – this achieve­ment is as much theirs as it is mine,” com­ments an ec­static Lee Mei Xian, ATC’s re­cent suc­cess story.

Lee was awarded a First Class Hon­ours Law De­gree (LLB) from the Univer­sity of Lon­don for its May 2015 ex­am­i­na­tion.

Founded in the year 1987, ATC has helped ful­fil the dreams of many in re­ceiv­ing cred­i­ble le­gal qual­i­fi­ca­tion by pro­vid­ing the pres­ti­gious 3+0 LLB (Univer­sity of Lon­don) pro­gramme.

The LLB pro­gramme at ATC is uniquely struc­tured in pro­vid­ing both full- and part-time classes in fa­cil­i­tat­ing the var­i­ous as­pi­ra­tions and needs of its stu­dents.

Recog­nis­ing the fact that it can be rather daunt­ing to ini­tially ori­en­tate one­self to the dis­tinc­tive fea­tures and skills needed to study law, in­for­ma­tive in­tro­duc­tory classes are usu­ally pro­vided at early stages of the course to help build stu­dents’ con­fi­dence.

ATC has an equal mix of lec­tur­ers from both aca­demic and the le­gal prac­tice world who not only im­parts le­gal knowl­edge, but also helps shape the minds of un­der­grad­u­ates.

The study of LLB par­tic­u­larly de­mands stu­dents to de­velop a crit­i­cal ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the English com­mon law le­gal tra­di­tion and at the same time, hone their abil­ity to think and write an­a­lyt­i­cally and ar­gu­men­ta­tively.

Through lec­tures, stu­dents are pro­vided a thor­ough un­der­stand­ing of the var­i­ous dy­namic ar­eas of English law while tu­to­ri­als fo­cused on equip­ping stu­dents with the cor­rect ex­am­i­na­tion tech­niques.

As an af­fil­i­ate cen­tre of the Univer­sity of Lon­don, ATC ben­e­fits from lec­tures pro­vided oc­ca­sion­ally by vis­it­ing lec­tur­ers from the univer­sity it­self.

Its stu­dents also ben­e­fit from the com­pre­hen­sive sets of law re­ports and up­dated text­books and re­lated ma­te­ri­als made avail­able in the Tun Ab­dul Hamid Law Re­source Cen­tre (Li­brary).

A com­puter lab with in­ter­net con­nec­tion is also made avail­able to en­cour­age un­der­grad­u­ates to im­prove their on­line re­search skills.

The LLB can be a long and ar­du­ous jour­ney, but ATC main­tains a cul­ture of not leav­ing its stu­dents alone.

Those re­quir­ing guid­ance are al­ways able to ac­cess and re­ceive per­sonal as­sis­tance from the fac­ulty mem­bers.

Be­sides, var­i­ous stu­dents’ ac­tiv­i­ties are held through­out the year to make the LLB jour­ney a mem­o­rable and valu­able one.

This in­cludes moot­ing com­pe­ti­tion, law ca­reer fair, sport’s day and stu­dents’ night, to name a few.

ATC re­cently cel­e­brated its 30 years of ex­cel­lence and has a proud record of be­ing the na­tion’s only pri­vate law school that has pro­duced 16 First Class grad­u­ates for the Univer­sity of Lon­don’s In­ter­na­tional Bach­e­lor of Laws (LLB) Pro­gramme.

De­ter­mined to con­stantly im­prove and con­tinue the tra­di­tion of pro­duc­ing world-class grad­u­ates, ATC is fur­ther de­vel­op­ing its LLB course for the aca­demic year of 2016/2017 by of­fer­ing in­ter­est­ing mod­ules namely, Civil and Crim­i­nal Pro­ce­dure and In­ter­na­tional Pro­tec­tion of Hu­man Rights.
