Australia's College Of Law is promoting something called the ASEAN+6 LLM by relying on this seeming endorsement from Nathaneal Kitingan of the Jeffrey & Joseph Kitingan clan

The College has this to say about its ASEAN +6 LLM:
The Master of Laws (Applied Law) in ASEAN+6 Legal Practice is designed to meet the needs of legal professionals engaged in cross-border practice between the 10-nation ASEAN group and the six nations that comprise the ASEAN+6 regional Free Trade Area (ASEAN, plus Australia-New Zealand, China, India, Japan and Korea), which is coming together in the new Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) .
It has been developed by The College of Law in collaboration with the Inter-Pacific Bar Association (IPBA).
Malaysian and Singapore based IPBA members who are listed as advisers for the course have been asked about their use of the Kitingan name to promote their course,but all have kept silent.The members of the Advisory Board are:
