Adding to a portfolio of eight campuses in the UK, the Hong Kong campus will mark the university’s first international presence.
With its wide portfolio of professional law degrees, specialist legal training and ongoing professional development courses for barristers and solicitors, ULaw has ambitious goals of raising the bar in Hong Kong’s provision of quality education and, ultimately, creating new opportunities for the city’s aspiring legal professionals to attain their career goals.
Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice-Chancellor and CEO at The University of Law, remarked: “We take pride in providing students with the highest-quality teaching, offering students practical skills that make them stand out in the marketplace. Whether it is having courses taught by practising solicitors and barristers, or providing students and alumni with access to work experience, all our courses are designed with their future employability in mind.”
The new Hong Kong campus will receive students starting from September 2019, initially offering a portfolio of face-to-face postgraduate courses. Additional professional courses and online training courses will be available to practising legal professionals as early as spring 2019.
Professor Nollent added: “We recognise Hong Kong’s position as an international legal and dispute resolution service hub, and it is therefore a significant market for The University of Law. Through a multi-million pound investment, we are ultimately looking to establish a long-term presence and operations in the region that will provide the same excellence in teaching and professional services to companies.”
