Amicus Curiae (‘AC’) was established in 2021 which aims to bridge the gap between law students, postgraduate law students, pupil in chambers and young lawyers through applied learning to equip them with the necessary practical and functional skill sets required to excel in their legal career. AC collaborates with a multitude of institutions and prestigious professionals in their respective fields to champion projects aimed at applied learning, inter alia, webinars, articles, recruitment drive, moots, charities and food drive. Currently, there are five (5) sub-committees under AC namely Civil Practice, Human Rights, Moot, Career and Legal Aid.
