Debate on human rights at UiTM, Dec 9-12, 2008. It's still a long way, but the Bar Council is promoting it early because of the prep that is needed. This is probably the first debate in the world hosted by a professional legal body and a public university.
The Bar and UiTM expect 300 Malaysian and foreign debaters to cross words at the great debate. The theme is "UDHR @ 60 and still not all is right". The Universal Declaration of Human Rights 1948 is celebrated on Dec 10 every year.
Last year, the Bar Council and supporters of human rights walked through the KL City on a Sunday morning. Several people were arrested.
