About this segment: Person of the Month is an initiative by the University of Malaya Law Review which aims to feature a prominent member of the University of Malaya’s Law Faculty towards the end of each month. The purpose of this segment is twofold. Firstly, to give due recognition to the contributions of our student leaders and secondly, so that their achievements might inspire other members of the faculty towards greater success.
Adam Thye Yong Wei, a final year student at the Faculty of Law, University of Malaya
Adam Thye Yong Wei, fondly known as Adam, is a final year student of the Faculty of Law, University of Malaya (‘UM’). Highly recognised for his recent success as the Runner-up of the National Client Consultation Competition 2019, Adam is a prominent, all-rounded student who was active in mooting competitions—both as participant and organiser—as well as in legal aid efforts. Soon to be stepping out of law school, Adam anticipates a working holiday trip to the United States of America for a few months after his final examination, before commencing his pupillage in the field of litigation.
