Human Rights Conference 2016, one of ALSA UM's many brainchild under Hui Yi's leadership
Hui Yi, or better known as Caitlin, was the President of the University of Malaya chapter of Asian Law Students’ Association (ALSA) for the academic year of 2015/2016. Her tenure has been a glorious success as it was the first time ALSA UM organized the ALSA UM Symposium(AUS) 2016 during the annual Student Exchange Program in November 2015. The theme of AUS 2016 was “Future Lawyer in Asia Region.” Amongst the programs organized were a talk on “Liberalization of Legal Services in Asia,” a forum on “Young Lawyers in Globalized World” and a full day program on arbitration. It aimed to provide law students with the opportunity to have better exposure to legal practices in other Asia regions, internship, and exchange opportunities.
