Cheng Yu Tung Tower opened in 2012 as the first standalone building on campus for the Faculty of Law since its establishment in 1969, marking a new chapter in the development of the Faculty. Designed to facilitate collaboration, the Tower includes a Mooting Chamber, an Academic Conference Room, Advocacy Laboratories, Research Centres and Institutes, Research Student Study Centres, the Clinical Legal Education Centre, and common rooms for students' associations.
Cheng Yu Tung Tower was made possible with a generous benefaction from Dr Cheng Yu-Tung and his family through the Chow Tai Fook Charity Foundation. It signifies an abiding commitment to the education of the future guardians of justice and the rule of law, and a vote of confidence in the Faculty.
"The Rule of Law is the cornerstone of the prosperity and stability of Hong Kong."
-Dr Cheng Yu-Tung
"We attach great importance to the rule of law, as we all understand that without this core value at the heart of business in Hong Kong, our city would not have achieved the economic success that it has. The Faculty of Law has been grooming generation after generation of legal talent, and we are delighted to see the completion of the Cheng Yu Tung Tower in the sincere hope that it will be a major asset to the faculty's future development."
-Dr Henry Cheng
Honorary Chairman of Chow Tai Fook Charity Foundation
