CLP EXAMINATION RULES: PROHIBITION ON HIGHLIGHTED STATUTE BOOKS
All future candidates of the CLP Examination are advised to take note that the Legal Profession Qualifying Board, Malaysia (‘LPQB’) in the meeting held on 26 November 2012 has decided that highlighted statute books shall not be allowed into the Examination Hall for the CLP Examination beginning in 2013. Therefore, all statute books, namely, the Rules of Court 2012, National Land Code (Act 56 of 1965), Evidence Act 1950 (Act 56) and Criminal Procedure Code (Act 593), must be entirely clean copies; not highlighted or underlined in any way, or contain any printed or handwritten notes, comments or remarks on cases (statute books with pencil marks which have been rubbed but are still legible shall be confiscated and no replacement statute book shall be given in accordance with the rules already in force). In addition, the statute books must not have “Post-It” notes, sticky tags or any other form of stickers.
There is no restriction as to the publisher of the statute books. Print-out from e-Federal Gazette (official portal for the publication of all federal legislation) is allowed provided that they are clean copies.
Candidates are also reminded to read the instructions which will be issued to them prior to the examination carefully and to comply with all such instructions. If any candidate is found to have notes/ prohibited materials in his/ her statue book or possession, such action shall be reported to LPQB and the candidate shall be subjected to the decision of LPQB, which may include a life ban from sitting for the CLP Examination.
