The Faculty has performed exceptionally well in the 2017-2018 round of research grants awarded by the Research Grants Council (RGC).  The RGC awarded more than HK$8.46 million in funding to 10 General Research Fund (GRF) projects and 3 Early Career Scheme (ECS) projects, which is the highest among local law schools (which received 6 and 3 grants respectively).  And this is more than double the amount awarded for the 2016-2017 year!  The projects funded tackle important issues in constitutional law, trust law, human rights law, legal education, legal history and theory, and land law.  Some are inter-disciplinary.  The largest grant of more than $1 million went to Professor Hualing Fu for his project on police power in transition societies including China.  For more details, please visit http://researchblog.law.hku.hk/2017/07/rgc-awards-85-million-in-research-grant.html
