Young Solicitors’ Group: Joint Professional Career Day 2017

Following the success of the two previous Joint Professional Career Days held respectively in 2015 and 2016, the Young Coalition Professional Group of the Hong Kong Coalition of Professional Services co-organised the third Career Day with the Education Bureau on 11 March. Held at Belilios Public School, the Career Day was well received with 192 students from various secondary schools in Hong Kong attending the event.

The event began with an opening ceremony where Mr. Ma Siu-cheung, Eric, Secretary for Development gave an inspiring speech and shared his experience in career planning with the students. The opening ceremony was followed by two break-out sessions, where students had close interactions with practitioners from various professions. It was our pleasure to have four members, including Ms. Linda Ngan, Ms. Daphne Lo, Ms. Judy Wong and Ms. Minnie Chang representing us as speakers at the breakout-sessions. Together with two representatives from the Hong Kong Bar Association (“the Bar Association”), they gave students a broad introduction of what solicitors and barristers do and various practice areas in the legal field. They also shared their experience and insights on how students should prepare themselves if they wish to become a lawyer in future.

The event was concluded with a debriefing session. It was delightful and encouraging to know that the students found our speakers’ sharing informative and useful. With the success of this event, the YSG will continue to explore opportunities to organise interesting events to bring useful information about the profession to the next generation.
