Overseas study experience is an important part of university education. It provides opportunities for students to broaden their horizon and develop a global view. Students are encouraged to pursue exchange studies outside Hong Kong by participating in student exchange programmes organised by the School of Law or Global Services Office (GSO).
Please visit the list of partner institutions for more information about the Student Exchange Programmes launched between our School and other law schools worldwide and proceed to do the online application before the prescribed timeframe. Please click UG or PG for more details about the undergraduate and postgraduate exchange programmes.
In order to complement the existing exchange progammes and to produce law graduates who could deal with the challenges of working in a globalised environment, the School of Law in 2007 launched the Global Legal Education and Awareness Project (G-LEAP). It is designed to promote excellence in legal education with a view to providing opportunities for our law students to have a global perspective in the study of law. Under G-LEAP, the School signed agreements with the Faculty of Law of Monash University and University College, Oxford. Our students can study credit-bearing law course for one month on an intensive basis during the summer term.
Students spend four weeks at Monash University, Australia, to study a course on Australian Corporations Law. Students attend classes for two weeks each at the Clayton campus and the Melbourne City campus. (G-LEAPing into study course Down Under)
Our students also go to University College, Oxford, U.K. to study a course on European Competition Law and Policy. (Law students take leap into Oxford study tour)
Application details of the G-LEAP will be announced to the students between January and March of each year.
The arrangement of G-LEAP is subject to confirmation.
The School’s LLM programme is a GLOBAL GATEWAY® Programme, which allows the students to participate in exchange and dual programmes under the cooperative agreements signed with a number universities and institutions.
