The Faculty welcomed home the first cohort of the HKU-UCL Dual Degree Programme in Law. Launched in 2016, this Programme has been attracting top students both in Hong Kong and UK. After spending 2 years with the University College London (UCL), these 10 students have now returned to the University of Hong Kong (HKU) to complete their legal studies. Upon successful completion of the whole programme, they will receive separate LLB degrees awarded by both UCL and HKU. These students were warmly welcomed by Programme Director Professor Johannes Chan SC (Hon) and Associate Dean Alice Lee.
The Faculty also welcomed over 200 new students this year. During the Opening Ceremony, not only inspired by Professor Alexa Lam’s words of wisdom, its new members were also encouraged by its donors’ and friends’ support in donating and presenting various scholarships and prizes to recognize students’ hard work and achievements in the last academic year.
