Standard Operating Procedure and Updated Guidelines for the Legal Sector during the Recovery Movemen

Circular No 181/2020
Dated 11 June 2020

To Members of the Malaysian Bar and pupils in chambers

Standard Operating Procedure and Updated Guidelines for the Legal Sector during the Recovery Movement Control Order Period

We refer to Circular No 131/2020 entitled “Government’s Decision to Reopen Businesses” dated 1 May 2020.

The Prime Minister on 7 June 2020 announced that the Recovery Movement Control Order (“RMCO”) would be implemented effective from 10 June 2020, replacing the Conditional Movement Control Order.

Further to this announcement, please click here (see pages 2 to 3) to view the updated Standard Operating Procedure (“SOP”) and guidelines from the Legal Affairs Division of the Prime Minister’s Department (Bahagian Hal Ehwal Undang-Undang Jabatan Perdana Menteri, “BHEUU”) dated 10 June 2020, which law firms are required to comply with.

Under the updated SOP and guidelines, law firms can now resume normal operating hours.

We hope that the information provided here is of assistance to Members.

Should you have any enquiries regarding the updated SOP and guidelines, Members are advised to contact BHEUU by telephone at 03-8885 1000 or by email at webmaster@bheuu.gov.my.

Thank you.
