Hey,maurice Thanks for your reply.

I'm from China, I want to be a lawyer in the corporate and financial feild~~I plan to do another llm after finishing this llm,and then I will hunt for a job in Hongkong or Mainland China.

Which university is better for applying another llm???I mean which one has a better reputation in legal academia??

I hear that some teachers in HKU are not responsible, for there are so many llm students, so much workload for teachers that they can't pay enough attention to the llm students. the quality of the llm education is as good as before. Is that true?

anyone studying or graduated from HKU can share your experience with me?????

Thank you so much!!!

So are you admitted to practice in China? and Hong Kong? And if you're looking for jobs in Hong Kong, i strongly suggest you to take HKU's LLM rather than Singapore as the laws are different even though HK and SQ are common law jurisdictions.

Your second question of taking "another LLM" after took this LLM, why do you need to take another LLM, for what? As far as a local Hongkonger can share, i don't think 2 or 3 LLM would do any help to your career but may be a very prestigious LLM from US and UK will do, but of course if you need to get more exposure in that particular areas of interest, you can of course take LLM in IP, LLM in Human Rights, LLM in Cyberlaw, etc, etc.

But if we just talk about your career in law in Hong Kong, you just simply admitted to HK, get a UK/US LLM or even admitted to a foreign bar such as CA, NYC or UK plus years of experience then you're almost there.

Re your question of LLM teachers: you can see good or not so good teachers in almost every institutions. My experience in HKU and CityU are mixed, with good and not so good teachers working there, but to be frank, the most important factor of acheiving something is yourself, and your attitude.

I was a graduate in HKU but not on law but i know some of the professors who are outstanding in academic and professional practice; I can say most of them are supportive, always keep their doors open, it depends whether you want to take the initative.

Good luck to your choice.
