About 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.
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. It is this excellence in teaching that we are excited to bring to Hong Kong.
