How difficult is it to get in HK schools of law ?


Joshf126

Hello everybody!

I'm attending my last year of university. In 8 months I will graduate and I was thinking of doing a LLM in Asia as I'm interested in specializing in international law (taxation, intellectual property or corporation law). I'm also considering studying Chinese law.

I first thought about Hong Kong to do my master but I'm wondering how hard is to get admitted in HKU and other schools of law within the city.

I have studied a degree in Business Administration and also a degree in Law, and my GPA equivalent score is around 3.3 for both. I have also done some summer internships (for instance I worked in some reports for the EU Commission). I speak fluent Spanish, English, intermediate Japanese and some Mandarin Chinese. The problem is, my university is a very small one in Europe, so I'm afraid that would be a con if I try to submit my application to HKU, CityU or Chinese University of Hong Kong...

What do you think? Should I spend my money in a non refundable application fee in those universities?

Thanks to everyone!

In general, the schools that you are considering will consider you with that GPA. Good luck!

Hi !
Where do you come from ?
Im applying to HKU for the LLM Corporate and Financial Law. I think theres a high competition in Asia mainly, cuz generally Latin Americans and Europeans are mostly thinking in studying in the US.
However, HKU English requirement is lower than in the UK/US so... I think well be fine. I have good grades also and speak 4 languages and I am learning mandarin (but I dont know if thats quite good thing for HK, cuz they kinda despise mainland chinese).
I have submitted my application, have you ?

If you get a response from your application please inform us. :)
