our Alumnis

Nurul Solehah

For others, chambering period was the most disaster period they encountered but not for me. I was honoured to be trained by my Master, Mdm K.Lakshmidevi. It was the greatest opportunity that I could ever ask. I still remember the first day I met my Master and had been offered to be her first chambie.
“….We will learn together…..” yes, that was her word who gave me warm welcome to be a part of the firm. Throughout nine (9) months, I learnt a lot not only focusing on legal field, but I learnt on how to face the real life in future.
We build our professional relationship till to date and still hoping that maybe one day in future I can get the opportunity to be a part of the firm again. Thank you to K.Lakshmidevi & Co for the opportunity, knowledge, skills, and good memories throughout my journey as Chambering student.

It is a privilege to have learnt from a firm that has given me hands on training and all the guidance that I needed as a pupil. The experience in K. Lakshmidevi & Co was exhilarating as the task given was indeed with trust and guidance and not merely an instruction for the purpose to get something done. I never regretted my decision to start my career at K. Lakshmidevi & Co, the firm that encourage me to pursue my dreams and bring out the best in me.


It was an honour to be accepted as Madam Lakshmidevi’s pupil during those short but sweet pupillage. It was an eye opener experience to be able to handle cases closely with Madam who I personally saw as a strict and perfectionist lawyer in town. I also owed to the firm beloved clerk, Kak Ganesh of the knowledge about conveyancing matters. Legal practice might not be my chosen career path, but surely this firm provided me the best starting point in my working life.


Coryn Teoh

“I am grateful and appreciative of the opportunity to undertake two-month legal internship in the firm. I was provided with huge amount of legal guidance and support throughout the internship. I have undoubtedly learned a lot from there, and I treasure everything that I have explored and experienced. It was a great and happy two-month internship in the firm.”

Ashmini Gnanasegaran

“To begin my internship journey at K.Lakshmidevi was one of the best decisions I had made.
Here, you are exposed to the different areas of practice engaged by this firm which expands
the knowledge that you acquire in various areas of the law. Despite only being an intern,
Mdm Lakshmi ensured that I was involved with each stage of the cases from beginning to
the end and this help enhance my legal and drafting skills. It’s not just about attaining legal
and practical knowledge, it’s also about observing day-to-day running of a legal business. I truly appreciate and value everything I have learned here. “
