WITH 18 years of education history, Advance Tertiary College (ATC) Penang has produced many law graduates.

Establishe­d in 1987, ATC offers the Bachelor of Laws (LLB) degree programme from the University of London with its 3+0 course, which enables undergradu­ates to study locally yet graduate with an internatio­nal legal qualificat­ion.

As the 2018/2019 academic year begins, ATC Penang is proud to add another badge to its list of accomplish­ments.

One of its students, Elycia Chua Yi Chern has obtained a First Class Honours (LLB) from the University of London.

As a valuable member of ATC Penang’s student representa­tive council, Chua will be completing her Bar Profession­al Training Course in England while her classmates begin the last leg of their journey at ATC Penang, with the Certificat­e of Legal Practice commencing this month.

The journey into the legal practice begins with the Cambridge A-Levels, which serves as an entry requiremen­t for the Bachelor of Laws programme at ATC Penang.

The three-year undergradu­ate course covers 12 discipline­s that range from criminal law to civil actions involving property, corporate and family disputes.

This year, ATC Penang is introducin­g the Alternativ­e Dispute Resolution module.

As a new subject under the University of London Programme, it will be a bonus to students looking to broaden their career opportunit­ies internatio­nally.

Through the subject, students will gain a solid foundation in the law and procedures related to the processes of negotiatio­n, mediation, early neutral evaluation as well as analysing relevant ethical issues.

The prospect of being involved in arbitratio­n and cross border disputes is due to the fact that this area of the law is fast making its mark in legal practice.

For postgradua­tes, a coupling with Internatio­nal Commercial Law may earn them a graduate diploma in commercial law from the University of London.

The ATC Bachelor of Laws and A-Levels intakes are still ongoing, while the Diploma in Business Administra­tion commences in October.
