At the recently concluded Certificate in Legal Practice (CLP) convocation, six BAC students made a clean sweep of all the awards presented by the Legal Professional Qualifying Board.
Sum Wai Loon was presented with the Tun Hamid Omar Award for Best Overall Student in the country making him the 13th BAC student to win this prestigious award in as many consecutive years. Five other BAC students also won book prizes (a clean sweep!) which recognize students who have achieved the highest marks in the individual papers.

Visibly delighted, Mr. Daniel Abishegam (General Manager and Senior Lecturer) said “2017 has been an unbelievable year for BAC as our students continue to break records and raise the bar. We would like to thank our students and staff for all they have done to ensure that BAC continues to be the Nation’s No.1 Law School and we look forward to more success stories.”
