The School of Law was established in 1987 as the Department of Law. The principal objective of the School is to support and improve the provision of legal education and training in Hong Kong.
High on our agenda are three goals: becoming a world renowned centre for research and teaching of law; equipping students with global knowledge, skills and perspectives; and establishing a trusted relationship with local and international legal establishments.
The School of Law aspires to be an internationally-renowned centre for research and teaching in law in the Asia-Pacific region. The mission of the School is to provide students with an excellent education and to contribute to the advancement of knowledge. Through cooperation with other law schools and professional organizations, the School aims to foster an environment in which both students and staff develop and use their legal knowledge, professional skills and expertise for the benefit of the whole Hong Kong community.
