In a statement, ULaw explained that it 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.

“We intend to maintain our high standards 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.

Speaking about the announcement, Andrea Nollent, vice chancellor and CEO at ULaw remarked that ULaw “takes pride in providing students with the highest quality teaching, offering students practical skills that make them stand out in the marketplace”.

“Whether it is having courses taught by practising solicitors and barristers or providing students and alumni with access to work experience, all our courses are designed with their future employability in mind,” he said.

Nollent added that 97% of Legal Practice Course students secured employment, training contract, or further study within nine months of completing their course.

“We intend to maintain this high standard in Hong Kong,” he said.

Nollent added that the university recognises Hong Kong’s position as an international legal and dispute resolution service hub, which makes it a significant market for ULaw.

“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,” he added.
