Bachelor’s in Law
Introduction to the Program
The Bachelor of Laws (LLB) offers an education in fundamental legal concepts and subjects, as well as a wider liberal-arts education. The LLB is a 4-year programme. The four-year LLB provides students with greater opportunities to address the following challenges:
- Acquiring a solid foundation in legal knowledge, transferable critical and analytical skills, and broadening of intellectual horizons
- Developing a high level of language proficiency
- Preparing for vocational training in the new skill-based PCLL
- Understanding globalization and the changing international scene
- Understanding the close interaction between the systems of China and Hong Kong
- Developing maturity
The LLB comprises a professional core which equips students with a solid foundation in legal knowledge, and elective courses which allow students exposure to the broader context in which the law operates. Students will have the opportunity to obtain a minor in a non-law area, or to obtain specialization in a specific area of law. In addition to our 4-year LLB, students may also consider choosing to study on the newly launched 4-Year Dual Degree Programme in Laws (the Programme) which is jointly offered with the Faculty of Laws of University College London (UCL). The Programme will enable graduates to obtain two LLBs from two top-ranking law schools in the world (HKULLB and UCLLLB), and open paths to legal qualifications in both jurisdictions. Students will spend the first two years at UCL and the following two years at HKU.
