welcome to HONG KONG

Study in the vibrant city of Hong Kong, where we launched our first international campus in 2019, an outstanding opportunity to bring our quality legal and business training to this exciting region. We welcome students not just from Hong Kong but from across the world.

About Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a world hub for commerce and finance with over 900 law firms, making it an ideal location to study and launch a career in law. In an increasingly global economy we take pride in maintaining an international outlook. We have built strong links with law schools and professional bodies throughout the world. We will be working closely with these local law firms and businesses to ensure that our courses are designed with students’ employability in mind.

Our tutors bring invaluable real-life experience into the classroom, helping our students stand out in the job market. We have nurtured many relationships in the region providing our students with links to mentors, alumni, work experience, internships, pro bono work and opportunities to further their legal or business studies. It is this excellence in teaching and support that we are excited to bring to Hong Kong.

Our classes take place in the teaching facilities of the Hong Kong Management Association. An organisation that focuses on advancing management excellence through its strong business links in the surrounding community.

Our Employability Service brings together the Careers and Pro Bono teams to provide you with information, advice, practical experience and links to the profession to help you to succeed in your career.
