What You’ll Study

The programme blends two strategic disciplines into a single course. Over five years, you will earn a BBA(Law) from the HKU Business School and an LLB from the Faculty of Law. Your LLB degree is the basic requirement to pursue a legal career and the first step towards entry to a Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) programme.
