Business Development for Young Lawyers on 31 July 2015

I presented a seminar on business development for young lawyers. It was attended by 30 lawyers, chambering students and law students. I spoke about the concept of generating and converting leads, tips on having a successful networking conference, building your own database and online marketing.

After my talk, we had a group discussion by the participants which were broken down in group. The participants are required to discuss on how they are going to market their legal practice to clients and prospective clients. Each group came out with standard marketing methods and also very unique ideas. One suggested that instead of a legal conference to speak about law, they have a funfair for their clients with their family, and one suggested that they should have a YouTube video on what to expect in a medical negligence case with a scene where a family member actually died.

Public Consultation Paper No. 1/2015: PROPOSED STANDARD PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION  

On 1 July 2015, the Personal Data Protection Commissioner published the Public Consultation Paper No. 1/2015. This consultation paper is intended to solicit feedback from the data users and data subjects relating to their understanding of the personal data protection.

In order to make the Standard for Personal Data Protection a reliable reference document, the Commissioner will merged three standards namely the Safety Standard, Storage Standard and Data Integrity Standard into one document.
  
According to the Commissioner, this step is in accordance with the requirements of the Personal Data Protection Regulations 2013 and the Personal Data Protection Act 2010. The feedback received through this public consultation paper will be analyzed and the results of this analysis will be used in the preparation of the final draft standard. The final draft will be presented to the 11 classes of data users before being registered by the Commissioner.

The feedback can be downloaded here (in Malay) and here (in English)
