The CityU Information Day 2018 was held on Saturday 13 October from 9:30am to 5:30pm. The School of Law (“SLW”) set up display boards and organised various activities to promote the undergraduate programme to prospective applicants. Our staff and student volunteers introduced programme information and addressed queries raised by participants.
A Mooting Training Workshop for secondary school students was held on the morning. It aimed at promoting legal education and inspiring students in debating, public speaking and writing.
Mr. Mike LAM and Mr. LC AU, two moot alumni in the SLW and now practising barristers, kicked off the event by providing the secondary school students with information about mooting and the mooting culture in the SLW. They then shared with the students the impact of mooting on their current legal career. Ms. Karen CHOI and Ms. Vamika PURI, two SLW students who represented the SLW in previous international mooting competitions, also shared with the students how mooting had helped them solve the difficulties they faced at the SLW.
The secondary school students also had the opportunity to participate and take part in a short moot. Karen and Vamika assisted them during the moot. Mike and LC presented the awards to the participants of the moot.
An Information Seminar for the LLB Programme was held in the afternoon which was delivered by Ms Anna LUI, LLB Programme Associate Director. She gave an introduction on the LLB Programme and answered participants’ enquiries. In the Seminar, two alumni, LEE Chi Tung Christina and TAM Keith were invited to come for sharing. It was well-attended by over 170 secondary school students and parents.
The event was a success and we trust the potential students and their parents and relatives were able to get a lot of useful information in relation to the SLW programmes.
