Significant changes in China have considerable implications for legal education and research on Chinese law in Hong Kong. As an international financial centre and the leading trade and investment partner with China, it is important that policy makers and lawyers in Hong Kong are equipped with sufficient knowledge and expertise on Chinese law and practice. The Centre addresses a growing need in Hong Kong and internationally for a more comprehensive understanding of the law and regulations of the People’s Republic of China. It provides strong support to the existing LLM Programme in Chinese Law at the postgraduate level and the Chinese Law Specialization in the LLB Programme at the undergraduate level within the Faculty.
The Centre works closely with the Faculty’s Master of Laws programme in Chinese Law and with the undergraduate programme in Chinese Law Specialization. Academic Members of the Centre also play a very important role in supervising postgraduate research students. The Centre intends to attract students of the highest caliber to the research postgraduate programme and to provide opportunities for their involvement in Chinese law research projects.
