Since its establishment as a Department of Law in 1969, HKU Law has become a key incubator for some of the most distinguished legal professionals and community leaders in Hong Kong.  It is a pivotal research hub in different areas of law connecting with Mainland China and the Asia-Pacific Region; and we actively share our knowledge with the community.

We could not have made far without contribution of generations of teachers and alumni; support from the University, the legal profession and the community; and of course philanthropic contributions from our donors. You may make a difference by supporting the Development Fund in general or the following initiatives:

Hong Kong Legal Information Institute (HKLII) (online donation)

“Beyond 50” Campaign: Enrich Students’ Lives & Empower the Community (online donation)
