Faculty of Law
The Faculty of Law (CUHK LAW) is one of the most dynamic and successful law schools in Asia. Since admitting its first cohort of students in 2006 CUHK LAW has grown significantly in scale and reputation. In 2019-20, CUHK LAW has more than 1,500 students enrolled in its programmes (LLB, LLM, JD, Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) and MPhil / PhD). CUHK LAW has been ranked consistently in the top 50 law schools worldwide by both, the Times Higher Education (THE) and the QS rankings system. In 2018 CUHK LAW was ranked by THE as the most international law school worldwide. CUHK LAW’s strength in research was recognised in the 2014 Research Assessment Exercise conducted by the Hong Kong University Grants Committee when CUHK LAW was ranked ahead of all other law schools in Hong Kong with 64% of its research ranked as “world leading” or “internationally significant”. CUHK LAW has a strong international outlook with over twenty jurisdictions (by origin or training) reflected in its academic staff. CUHK LAW is committed to fostering diversity in its recruitment and encourages applications from all candidates whose background and experience will enhance the diversity of its faculty. Further information about CUHK LAW is available at http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/law.
