The Faculties of Law of the University of Hong Kong and the University of Cambridge, and Des Voeux Chambers have renewed a visiting fellowship agreement for another five years. Under the Des Voeux Chambers Cambridge-HKU Visiting Fellowship Scheme, which was first introduced in 2016, an academic from the Cambridge Faculty of Law will visit HKU Faculty of Law as Visiting Fellow for one month every year. The visit, during which lecture(s) or workshop(s) may be organised, will promote and further academic links between the three partners involved.

Professor Hualing Fu, Dean of Law, The University of Hong Kong, said: “We are excited to partner with the University of Cambridge and Des Voeux Chambers for another five years to offer our colleagues and students the opportunity to have academic exchange with Cambridge scholars”.

Professor Mark Elliott, Chair of the Faculty of Law at Cambridge, said: “We are delighted to renew this Visiting Fellowship programme, which enables dialogue and the exchange of ideas at a time when such opportunities are particularly valuable. We are very grateful to Des Voeux Chambers and the HKU Faculty of Law for continuing to partner with us in this initiative.”

Mr William Wong SC, Des Voeux Chambers, said: “DVC is honoured to support this Visiting Fellowship programme, which is not only about sharing of knowledge and expertise, but also about building strong partnerships between Cambridge and HKU, fostering a global community of scholars and creating opportunities for collaborative research”.
