The move will add to the portfolio of eight campuses in the UK, with the Hong Kong campus marking the University’s first international presence.

Ambitious goals

With its wide portfolio of professional law degrees, specialist legal training and on-going professional development courses for barristers and solicitors, ULaw has ambitious goals of raising the bar in Hong Kong’s provision of quality education, and ultimately creating new opportunities for the city’s aspiring legal professionals to attain their career goals. Professor Andrea Nollent, Vice Chancellor and CEO at The University of Law, remarked ‘we recognise Hong Kong’s position as an international legal and dispute resolution service hub, and it is therefore a significant market for The University of Law. Through a multi-million pound investment, we are ultimately looking to establish a long-term presence and operations in the region that will provide the same excellence in teaching and professional services to companies.’

Spring start

Extolling the 97 per cent of LPC students securing employment, training contract, or further study within nine months of completing their course, Professor Andrea Nollent said ‘we intend to maintain this high standard in Hong Kong.’ The new Hong Kong campus will receive students starting from September 2019, initially offering a portfolio of face-to-face postgraduate courses. Additional professional courses and online training courses will be available to practising legal professionals as early as spring 2019.
