Nigel Lo is first Malaysian to win Long Tan Australian Defence Force Award for Leadership



Sarawakian born lawyer Nigel Lo (now based in Perth) is the first Malaysian to win the Long Tan Leadership & Teamwork Award from the Australian Defence Force.

The award won over a decade since – recognises outstanding dedication and leadership to inspiring peer encouragement and learning through the Murdoch College Magis Society in Perth, Australia.

The former youth advocate received a cash prize of AUD$500 besides the award which recognises students who demonstrated leadership and teamwork within the school and community.

“The Magis Society was a school run club which aims to get students to inspire and help one another excel in all areas of life” Lo explained, adding that the word ‘Magis’ meant to ‘seek more’ in Latin.

According to him, the club gave students and the opportunity to seek more and learn from each other.

Through the Magis Society Lo co-wrote the manual called ‘The Legacy Project’ to help club members change their own lives as well as the lives of those around them.

Formed in February 2010, the club has a global network of 145 members operating from countries like Australia, United States, Singapore and Malaysia. Lo pursued a law degree at Murdoch University in Perth. 

Two years later in 2012, one of the members of the Magis Society – Darence Ki’s Recyclecity project was launched with the aim to inspire and teach young people to practise good recycling habits by collecting and selling recycled items and using the proceeds to sponsor children in poverty ridden countries like Africa.

According to a press release yesterday, the Form 2 student was one of a cohort of students from the prestigious Lodge School attending a workshop entitled ‘Social Entrepreneurship’ delivered by the International Magis Society (IMS) chairman Nigel Lo and director of the Western Australia Socio Economic Foundation (Wasef), Mathias Morgan.

A decade later in 2023, Nigel Lo has since moved on from the Magis Society and is now the Managing Partner of GLP Lawyers International, a law firm founded by his father George Lo and now heads the Perth office of the firm.
