Our joint Webinar on English Legal Writing on 4 June 2021 was a resounding success, with many interested participants unable to log in due to Zoom platform restrictions.
Our deepest apologies to our Chinese and Sabah lawyer friends who were unable to join us. This is the first year that we opened our JLPW internal training to parties outside the firm and we were caught by surprise by the tremendous interest from lawyers in Sabah. A repeat webinar will be hosted on 18 June 2021 from 3-5.30pm.
“在2021年6月4日召开的网络研讨会上提出了这些有趣的问题。该会议由Jeff Leong, Poon & Wong （JLPW）律师事务所和北京霖理律师事务所共同召开，由中国仲裁法学研究会（CAAL）提供支持，涵盖“法律写作的ABC”和“国际商事合同和仲裁条款起草”两个专题。
Jeff Leong, a senior partner with JLPW presided over the webinar, which received more registrations than ever before, thanks to the local law society support in Sabah, Malaysia. 此次网络研讨会由JLPW高级合伙人梁柏林（Jeff Leong）律师主持，并获得来自马来西亚沙巴州当地法律界人士的大力支持，研讨会注册人数创下历史新高.”
