The annual Members' Forum serves as a major platform for Council members to mingle with our general members. The Forum this year was held on 28 July. Well attended by around 70 participants, it afforded an invaluable opportunity for the Council to hear the views of members on different issues of interest to the profession.
Every year, a topic will be set for focal discussion at the Forum. The topic this year was "Use of Awards and Citations in Practice Promotion". At the Forum, members shared their views on the pros and cons of using the awards and citations given out by commercial operators for the purpose of practice promotion, and the impact of such awards on practitioners or law firms.
Members also actively participated by volunteering other comments and suggestions during the “Dialogue session” or to Council members seated at their tables.
