On 5 October, the Young Solicitors’ Group (“YSG”) held its annual “Meet the Practitioners Drinks Reception for Law Students” at a social enterprise café at Tamar Park operated by the Tung Wah Group of Hospitals, where over 70 law students and practitioners gathered for a relaxing Friday night with drinks and canapés.
The reception was 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 Melissa Pang, Vice-President C.M. Chan, Council Members Mr. Pierre Chan, Ms. Serina Chan, Mr. Eric Cheung, Mr. Warren Ganesh, Ms. Karen Lam, Mr. Roden Tong and Ms. Careen Wong, as well as YSG committee members.
In her welcoming remarks, President introduced the work of the Law Society and the activities organised by the YSG to the law students. The night concluded with experienced legal practitioners and members of the YSG sharing their own experiences on legal practice with the lawyers-to-be. The YSG would like to extend its thanks and gratitude towards our guests and participants, without whom the event would not have been as successful.
