How to become a Lawyer in Hong Kong? An Admissions Talk for Postgraduate Courses in Law by University of Law

How to become a Lawyer in Hong Kong? An Admissions Talk for Postgraduate Courses in Law by University of Law

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

In the Seminar, admissions representative from University of Law will introduce their postgraduate courses in law, 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 postgraduate courses in Law:

    Admission representative from 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.

    • Yes – it’s possible for a non-law degree graduate to become a lawyer! Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL) and Master of Arts in Law (MA Law)
      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.
    • Are you a law degree graduate, looking to train as a lawyer in the UK? Legal Practice Course (LPC) and Bar Practice Course (BPC)

      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 University of Law will answer these and other frequently asked questions in the talk!

  • 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?
  • How does a Distance Learning course work? How much time per week does it usually require, for a working adult taking a part-time distance learning course?
    The GDL, LPC and LLB in University of Law all offer a distance learning mode of study (available as a full-time and part-time course). How does the arrangement work in practice, in terms of class delivery, learning resources, exams and assessment? How much time should a working adult taking a part-time course expect to devote to the their studies? Is there any extra support from the University for distance learning students?
  • Student story sharing: Becoming a lawyer is only one of many career outcomes!
    In the past, many students doing a postgraduate course with 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 University of Law will share some of these student stories, to show that becoming a lawyer is only one of many career outcomes!

70% UK Students – Why Do Students Choose to Transfer to MPW for their GCSE and A-levels?

As a sixth form college, the majority of students in MPW are A-levels students who transferred to MPW from other secondary schools, with many of them coming from top schools in their regions! The majority of them would start at MPW after completing their GCSE, while some might transfer during their A-levels years due to different circumstances. And there are also a good number of students who join the 1-Year A-levels programmes to have another go in public exams, as it’s believed that the first attempt didn’t reflect their ability.

Below we have summarized from the student testimonials on the MPW website, in which we have tried to highlight why they made the decision to transfer to MPW, and what they see as the best part of their experience in MPW:

1-Year A-levels

If you have the ambitions and you believe that you’re capable of getting into one of the world’s finest universities (such as Oxbridge, LSE and alike) or one of the highly competitive subjects (such as Medicine, Actuarial Science, Law, etc), then perhaps a 1-Year A-levels programme will be a good option to look at – a second attempt in the widely recognized GCE A-levels qualifications!

From when you express your interest in the one-year A-levels, the admissions team from MPW will already start talking to you, to understand your aspiration and come up with a good study plan for you. These can range from advices on subject choices, planning for work and volunteering experience, to preparation for admission interviews and specialist written tests (such as UKCAT and BMAT for Medicine, LNAT for Law, etc). All of these start early because studying in one year what normal students have two years to cover isn’t an easy task!

When students arrive, they will study under the guidance of their teachers and personal tutors – an excellent level of support that crafted a highly positive study experience, as described below by one of our successful students Ulysses!

A Testimonial Written by Ulysses

MPW is ranked among the very top sixth form colleges in the A-Level results table with an extraordinarily high rate of 40% of candidates obtaining A*/A, according to the Telegraph. Being situated in Cambridge, a place widely pervaded by an academic atmosphere, MPW ought to be an ideal place for studying. These were my considerations when choosing a college: academic performance and location. And, that was why I chose MPW.

Indeed, MPW is not in vain that it bears the place in the table. I received high levels of holistic assistance covering my academic aspect as well as university guidance from the teachers. Joel, my personal tutor, did not only help me with my application but also voluntarily used his spare time to mark my extra homework as an experienced philosophy teacher. My class teachers, Toby, Nick and Neil, were all equally excellent explainers on the abstract concepts of philosophical arguments, mathematical formulae and economic problems respectively in spite of the limited time of the course, whose length was only a year for both AS and A2. Their enlightenments on me were not merely scholarly, they ameliorated my attitude towards studying, my logical and critical thinking, and most importantly, they befriended me not as teachers but socially experienced yet ordinary men, which is fundamental to students because to us, schools are not places wholly classified as homework factories, on the contrary, they are where we live, where we interact with and learn life experience from people.

The result day did not bring any disappointment to the teachers to whom I should thank and be grateful for. I eventually achieved A*AAA in my A-Level and am en route to study law at Cambridge, which drew a period, if not an exclamation mark, to my secondary education. I can conclude that my life at MPW was enjoyable and unforgettable that there was no regret or mournfulness that I chose MPW. It was a privilege and an honour having studied there.
