The Young Solicitors’ Group (“YSG”) held its annual flagship event, “Meet the Practitioners Drinks Reception for Law Students”, on 15 September when over 100 law students and 40 practitioners gathered at a social enterprise café in Admiralty operated by the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals.
The reception was well attended by law students from the Chinese University of Hong Kong, City University of Hong Kong, the University of Hong Kong and members of the Asian Law Students’ Association. Representatives from the Law Society who were in attendance included President Thomas So, Vice President Melissa Pang, Immediate Past President Stephen Hung, Past President Huen Wong, Council Members Mark Daly, Nick Chan, Serina Chan, Warren Ganesh, as well as YSG committee members led by Chairlady Bonita Chan.
We were also graced with the presence of the President and YSG Chairlady, who both delivered a warm welcoming speech introducing the work of the Law Society and activities organised by YSG. The night ended with experienced legal practitioners and members of the YSG sharing their own personal experience and inspirational views with the law students. We would like to extend our special thanks to our general practitioners, guests and representatives, without whom the event would not have been as successful.
