Whitgift School is a top all boys boarding school with a very advantageous location in London (Zone 5). With the options of GCE A-levels and International Baccalaureate (IB) in sixth form, Whitgift School enjoys a very good reputation in academic work and music and has in the past (2008-2011) been listed as one of the best 50 schools in the UK, out of 3000 schools. In recent years, however, Whitgift School has refused to be included in league tables published by newspapers in the UK – a move employed by many top independent schools to avoid parents paying too much attention on public exam results and overlooking other important aspects of education. That doesn’t mean that Whitgift School has lowered its standard on academic work though. In 2019, the A*-B rate in GCE A-levels remains an impressive 93%. In International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, the average score is 38.6, out of the 45 full marks – results that would have put the School in top positions in any league tables.

In Music, Whitgift School is famous for the orchestra, which collaborated with the The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London in 2011 and has performed in many other countries including Japan, Spain, German and more.

Since 2013, Whitgift School has expanded its boarding provision and can now provide more than 100 boarding places – which still does not satisfy the demand, making competition for places extremely fierce. Students are advised to apply two to three years in advance.

How to become a Lawyer in Hong Kong and the UK? An Admissions Seminar in Law by University of Exeter and the University of Law

How to become a Lawyer in Hong Kong and the UK? An Admissions Seminar in Law by University of Exeter and the University of Law

Type: Seminar
Target: HKDSE, GCE A-levels Graduates, University Students and Working Adults
Location: British United

In UK’s lawyer training system, there is an unique division of labour between traditional universities and professional law schools! At undergraduate level, the vast majority of law students would study their law degree (LLB (Hons)) at a traditional university, after which they would continue their professional training (studying the LPC or BPC) in professional law schools like the University of Law – quite unlike the system in Hong Kong where traditional universities would cover both undergraduate and postgraduate training!

Founded in 1876, the University of Law has an excellent and unique reputation in professional legal training in the UK. In its early years, it was the lawyer training school of the Law Society of England and Wales, and later became the first private university that was granted degree-awarding power by the UK government! Today, the University of Law is one of the most established law schools in the UK. In recent years, the University of Law has formed partnership with traditional universities like University of Exeter, to deliver its GDL and LPC on-campus, so that students can enjoy the the range of campus facilities and campus life in a traditional university campus.

In this special seminar, University of Exeter and the University of Law will introduce the education system in law, from undergraduate to postgraduate, in order to help students and parents understand how students can qualify as a lawyer in Hong Kong and the United Kingdom, and explain how different courses may be better for students in different career stages.

  • An Overview of the UK Legal Training System:

    Together with a lecturer from University of Exeter, Admission representative from the University of Law will provide details about the following postgraduate courses, covering areas such as course structure, entry requirements, tuition fees, study locations and the steps it takes after the course to qualify as a lawyer.

  • A standard UK law degree (LLB (Hons)) is three years in length, while some universities (such as the University of Law) also offer two-year options. After completing the LLB (Hons), students will need to pass the PCLL Conversion Exams before they’re eligible to return to Hong Kong to continue their professional training via the PCLL. If students were to train in the UK, they would have to complete either a LPC (training as a solicitor) and a BPC (training as a barrister).

    In this section, a lecturer from University of Exeter will provide an overview of their law degrees (LLB (Hons)), covering areas such as course structure, entry requirements, tuition fees and more!

    • POSTGRADUATE – for Graduates with a Law Degree to train as a Solicitor: Legal Practice Course (LPC) a full-time course lasts 1 year, also available as a part-time distance learning course
    • POSTGRADUATE – for Graduates with a Law Degree to train as a Barrister: Bar Practice Course (BPC) a full-time course lasts 1 year

    The UK’s equivalent to the PCLL in Hong Kong, LPC and BPC are the essential postgraduate training courses for UK’s solicitors and barristers respectively. After the LPC and BPC, graduates have to complete a training contract with a law firm, before they can register as a UK lawyer. How can students increase their chances in securing a training contract? Can students undertake their training contract in Hong Kong? Admissions representative from the University of Law will answer these and other frequently asked questions in the talk!

    • POSTGRADUATE – for Graduates with a Non-Law Degree: Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) a full-time course lasts 1 year, also available as a part-time distance learning course
    • POSTGRADUATE – for Graduates with a Non-Law Degree: Master of Arts in Law (MA Law) a full-time course lasts 1 year, also available as a part-time distance learning course

    Tailored for graduates with a non-law degree, the Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) covers essential core modules in law, enabling non-law graduates to pursue professional qualifications to qualify as a lawyer. After the GDL, graduates can follow the British training route and progress onto a Legal Practice Course (LPC) or a Bar Practice Course (BPC), and register as a UK lawyer after completing a training contract with a law firm; if they’d like to follow Hong Kong’s training route, graduates can do so as they will be eligible to apply to the PCLL after passing PCLL Conversion Exams.

  • Coming back to Hong Kong to practise: Can a UK lawyer practise law in Hong Kong?
    After a long and demanding journey to qualify as a UK lawyer, will students be able to practise as a lawyer in Hong Kong? What does it take to become a Hong Kong lawyer? Will the status as a UK lawyer offer advantages in a legal career in Hong Kong?
  • Student story sharing: Becoming a lawyer is only one of many career outcomes!
    In the past, many students doing a postgraduate course with the University of Law (especially part-time students doing a distance learning course) aren’t really looking for a career change into the legal profession. Instead many find that good knowledge in law helps advance their career in other industries! In this section, admissions representative from the University of Law will share some of these student stories, to show that becoming a lawyer is only one of many career outcomes!

In the UK, they include Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, who completed his LPC in the University of Law before embarking on his journey as a human rights lawyer and later a successful career in politics.

Campus-based Study Locations

The University of Law has campuses in major cities in the UK, such as London, Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester and Nottingham. In recent years, the University of Law has also formed partnership with University of Reading, University of Exeter, University of Liverpool and University of East Anglia, to deliver its GDL and LPC on-campus, so that students can enjoy the the range of campus facilities and campus life in a traditional university campus. The Hong Kong campus also officially opened in the 2019/20 academic year.

Whitgift School is a top all boys boarding school with a very advantageous location in London (Zone 5). With the options of GCE A-levels and International Baccalaureate (IB) in sixth form, Whitgift School enjoys a very good reputation in academic work and music and has in the past (2008-2011) been listed as one of the best 50 schools in the UK, out of 3000 schools. In recent years, however, Whitgift School has refused to be included in league tables published by newspapers in the UK – a move employed by many top independent schools to avoid parents paying too much attention on public exam results and overlooking other important aspects of education. That doesn’t mean that Whitgift School has lowered its standard on academic work though. In 2019, the A*-B rate in GCE A-levels remains an impressive 93%. In International Baccalaureate (IB) exams, the average score is 38.6, out of the 45 full marks – results that would have put the School in top positions in any league tables.

In Music, Whitgift School is famous for the orchestra, which collaborated with the The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London in 2011 and has performed in many other countries including Japan, Spain, German and more.

Since 2013, Whitgift School has expanded its boarding provision and can now provide more than 100 boarding places – which still does not satisfy the demand, making competition for places extremely fierce. Students are advised to apply two to three years in advance.
