Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, CUHK Law organised the Alumni Annual Cocktail Reception at the Hong Kong Club on 25 January 2019, gathering around 180 alumni from different years and programmes, Faculty members and guests to mingle and enjoy an evening of fun. This year, CUHK Law was delighted and honoured to have Dr. Simon Sik On Ip, GBS, CBE, JP joining as the Guest of Honour, who gave an inspiring address to open the event. Similar to last year, guests who have contributed to the Faculty over the years were invited to attend, including Guests of Honour of past Faculty events, PCLL External Course Assessors, Distinguished Professional Mentors, Trial Advocacy Judges, members of the Judiciary and legal professions, friends and supporters. CUHK Law would like to thank all alumni and distinguished guests for coming along, and looks forward to seeing them again at the cocktail reception next year!
