On 30 January 2018, the Faculty of Law of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (‘CUHK Law’) hosted this cocktail reception as the first major alumni event in the Garden Lounge of the Hong Kong Club. The Faculty was very pleased to welcome the alumni and was honoured to have The Honourable Chief Justice Geoffrey Ma joining and giving an amusing and inspiring address. The Court of Final Appeal Permanent Judges The Honourable Mr. Justice Roberto Ribeiro and The Honourable Mr. Justice Joseph Fok, and Non-Permanent Judge The Honourable Mr. Justice Kemal Bokhary were also present along with Mr. Philip Dykes, Chairman of the Hong Kong Bar Association, members of the Judiciary, legal practitioners, and many other guests who have contributed to the Faculty over the years in so many different ways. A good number of current and former faculty members also attended and took the opportunity to catch up with their students from previous years.
It was a splendid evening that all participants enjoyed. CUHK Law would like to thank all alumni and distinguished guests for coming along, and looks forward to their participation at the cocktail reception next year – this time on a Friday evening!
