Professional Career Progression

Hong Kong

Those students wishing to qualify as lawyers in Hong Kong must complete the P.C.LL. course. From 2008 additional admission requirements have been imposed for the P.C.LL. . Those wishing to apply for P.C.LL. must also have completed an IELTS test within three years of application and should have an overall 7. 

Completion of the University of London LLB fulfills most of the Hong Kong P.C.LL. admission Core Subjects requirement.  "Missing" competencies and Top-up Subjects, however, can be acquired via taking the Conversion Exams.  Starting from the academic year 2021/2022, there are  nine Core Subjects required for entry to the P.C.LL. programme.  For full details, please see https://ple.hku.hk/ and pcea.com.hk.   Students should be mindful of their choices of optional modules if they are working towards a Hong Kong P.C.LL. aligned law degree.

SQE

The Solicitors Qualifying Examination (SQE) opens to degree holders in any subject intending to be qualified as solicitors.  But a prestigious formal law degree still puts you in a better position and is likely to be favoured by law firms.  A rigorous LLB will give you solid foundation to pass the SQE assessments.  SQE includes two assessments: SQE1 and SQE2.  SQE1 assesses functioning legal knowledge (FLK).  Most of the FLK areas are covered in the LLB curriculum.  For full details, please refer to the Solicitors Regulation Authority:  https://www.sra.org.uk/become-solicitor/sqe/

Bar training

You still need a qualifying law degree (minimum 2:2 classification) or a non-law degree plus a Graduate Diploma in Law to fulfill the academic stage if you want to become a barrister.  Your law degree must include seven foundations of legal knowledge which are all covered in the LLB curriculum.  For full details, please refer to the Bar Standards Board:  https://www.barstandardsboard.org.uk/training-qualification/becoming-a-barrister.html

Admission in other jurisdictions

With the London LLB, many HKU SPACE alumni have succeeded in getting admitted to practise in Canada, California, and New York, etc.  HKU SPACE has been providing numerous testimonies to qualifying authorities in different jurisdictions for alumni on their study and attendance of courses.
