UK Legal Pathways

HKU SPACE law students have a proven track record of using their law studies at HKU SPACE as a pathway to legal careers in the UK and around the world. Just ask Ben, who says his studies on HKU SPACE's Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law helped secure him a job with a global top 10 law firm.

Several students have advantage of our Quick Transfer to  UK study option to move to Manchester within a year of starting their studies at HKU SPACE on the Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law. Or you can apply to move to London within a year of starting your studies on HKU SPACE's University of London LL.B. Preparation Courses.

HKU SPACE's popular  Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law and University of London LL.B. Preparation Courses are also excellent preparation for the Solicitors Qualifying Examination route to qualifying as a lawyer in England and Wales, covering most of the required foundation areas of law, and so greatly increasing your chances of getting a good result.

Or you can qualify as a Barrister of one of the historic Inns of Court in London. Start your law studies on either HKU SPACE's Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law (CPE) or the University of London LL.B. Preparation Courses and, under current rules, you only need one year of further study in the UK on a Bar Training Course to be eligible for Call to the Bar as a Barrister in London.# Add on one more year of pupillage to practice law in England. Or use your prestigious Barristers' qualification as a law teacher or in almost any non-legal career.@

# Information offered for general guidance only. Please check all requirements directly with Bar Standards Board.
@ Please refer to guidance from Bar Standards Board on when you can refer to yourself as a Barrister prior to completing pupillage.

The University of London LL.B. Preparation Courses and Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law (Common Professional Examination) are exempted courses under the Non Local Higher and Professional Education (Regulation) Ordinance.  It is a matter of discretion for individual employers to recognize any qualification to which these courses may lead.

We are no longer accepting applications this year, please consider our other law courses with various other pathways to the PCLL.
