Feb 28, Colombo: A team of senior lawyers from Myanmar will visit Sri Lanka next month seeking assistance from legal experts to set up the legal system in Myanmar, the Bar Association of Sri Lanka (BASL) said.

The Myanmar team will attend a Law Conference organized by the Bar Association of Sri Lanka from March 18 - 20. The team will meet legal experts during the conference to learn how to form a legal system in Myanmar where a new government was formed after years of military rule.

According to the Chairman of the BASL's Law Conference, President's Counsel Ali Sabri, the Myanmar legal team has sought the BASL's permission to have one-on-one discussions with legal experts.

Ali Sabri said the BASL is exploring the possibility of helping the visiting team to get Myanmar's legal system on the right track.

President Maithripala Sirisena, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, Chief Justice K. Sripavan and Judges of the Supreme Court, and many other dignitaries will participate.

Several South African dignitaries in the legal fraternity will also attend the conference.
