About

The Laws programme from The University of Hong Kong includes a professional core to establish a solid foundation of legal knowledge. t also offers the possibility of specializing in a particular area of law such as commercial law, Chinese law, international trade and economic law, so that our graduates would have an edge over law graduates elsewhere with general legal training.

Overview

Being the first local university qualifications to be recognized for admission to legal practice in Hong Kong, The University of Hong Kong's 4-year Bachelor of Laws curriculum has a number of characteristic features to ensure the competitiveness of our graduates, which include:

  • ­Solid foundation in legal knowledge, transferable critical and analytical skills, and broadening of intellectual horizons; 
  • Systematic honing of professional skills such as critical thinking, analytical and problem solving skills, research and writing skills, and bilingual language proficiency; and
  • Integrated experiential learning and capstone experience through an integrated sequence of legal research and writing, mooting, internship and clinical legal education.

Exciting Opportunities

Students are provided with extensive opportunities for exchange and international experience. They may also opt for a second degree through the pathway programmes, which may enable them to practice law in both countries after the completion of the two degrees.  

Career Prospects

Many graduates of the Faculty of Law are now serving the Hong Kong community as solicitors, barristers, magistrates and judges, corporate counsel and government lawyers. Others are teaching law in Hong Kong's three law schools. Our alumni have served as chairman of the Hong Kong Bar Association, Permanent Judge of the Court of Appeal and Judges of the High Court. Many have also been appointed Senior Counsel or joined the governing bodies of the legal profession in Hong Kong, the Bar Council of the Hong Kong Bar Association and the Council of the Law Society of Hong Kong.

Faculty graduates can also be found pursuing a wide range of careers that at first sight might seem to have little to do with law. Some of our graduates become senior figures serving the business sector, political leaders, chairpersons of statutory bodies, and senior civil servants and journalists.
