LexGala is a revamp from the previous LawNite that is organized by the Law Society of University of Malaya throughout these years. It is an annual gala dinner which involves the academic and non-academic staff and students of the Faculty of Law, University of Malaya as well as the honoured members from the legal fraternity. This dinner is one of the most anticipated events among the various activities organised by the Law Society of University of Malaya (LAWSOC). This event gives a platform to extend honour and acknowledgement to the law firms for their support over the previous year. It also provides the honoured members of the legal fraternity with a platform to interact with the law students as well as scout for potential talents for their future recruitments. Above all, it is a joyous night to celebrate the most valuable assets of the faculty—the law students themselves.
At the meantime, we aim to contribute to the society aside from holding the annual dinner. For this year, we have our charity event named LexCare. The charity focus of LexGala this term will be the suicide survivors. We aim to assist from legal perspective regarding their basic human rights, and to offer a helping hand towards these individuals in both monetary terms and emotional support. To achieve this, LexGala will be raising funds through our charity merchandise sales as well as raising awareness by executing different activities related to the suicide survivors such as forum session or podcast session. We will be inviting prominent figures who are expertise in legal field related to suicide crimes as the panel to talk about the rights and wrong of the suicide survivors as well as raise awareness among the society.100% of profit earned from this gala dinner will be contributed to Non-Governmental Organization.
In our efforts to practice social distancing, this year’s event still deviates from our normal gala dinner. Utilizing online platforms to host a virtual dinner, LexGala’s “Light Tomorrow With Today” will be held virtually this tenure, serving as a platform of interaction between law students and prominent people of the legal fraternity, as well as bringing everyone together for the same cause.
