[WATCH] Young lawyers take Bar president to task over minimum wage for pupils

Seth Akmal

THE Young Lawyers Movement (YLM) has expressed disappointment with Bar Council president Karen Cheah who recently said it was counter productive to set a minimum wage for pupils in chambers.

Cheah had said so in respect of smaller law firms and those outside the Klang Valley.

YLM representatives today, however, said her comments seemed to suggest that small firms stand to lose the benefit of having cheap labour if a minimum remuneration for pupils was implemented.
