We are ending the last month of the 1st quarter….that’s right MARCHING on to the 2nd Quarter.

Nonetheless, we were all saddened by the Lahad Datu attack which caused casualties to our security and even our fellow Malaysians to protect our beloved country’s honour and sovereignty over Sabah which has became part of Malaysia since 1963.

Lahad Datu

Let us all stand together in unity to give support to the police and armed forces at the front line to fight off any invaders into our country.

Our intern No.31, Sabina has chosen an article “How to Build a Good Team” to share with CA’tizens during our monthly Rhythm meeting and to sum it up, the keys to successful team work are:-

CA 30th Intern ~ Davis We Joseph of Sabah

We are pleased to present to you, Chur Assosiates’s 30th intern Davis We Joseph…

Davis We Joseph

Davis recently joined Chur Associates as our 30th intern, also our 4th intern from Sabah. He is a graduate of LLB (Hons) from the University of Manchester. Upon graduating from his tertiary study, he has decided to return to Malaysia to take on the challenge for CLP while enhancing his legal knowledge and experience here in CA.

Davis likes to taste on different cuisines and has been travelling to different places to learn more on the variety of food and their culture. From trying crispy grasshopper in Yunnan, China to eating raw crabs in Hokkaido, he still finds that the local food in Malaysia is still his no. 1 favourite, especially nasi lemak!

“Being a part of CA with its unique CA’lture and working with the friendly CAtizen, the internship in CA has definitely given to me an unforgettable experience. Chris has told me during the interview that this is not a normal law firm and obviously after joining CA, undoubtedly he is stating the truth.”
