Complete the Remaining PCLL Prerequisites and Gain a Head-Start on Litigation Procedure and Advocacy!

FINAL CALL! LLB (Hons) Hong Kong Application deadline is extended to 10 September 2021.

This one year programme for HKU SPACE students leads to an LLB (Hons) Hong Kong awarded by Manchester Metropolitan University, and gives exemption from more PCLL Conversion examinations than almost any other English law degree.

This programme is  for students who have studied at HKU SPACE on the Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law (Common Professional Examination) and is the final year of a fast track programme allowing students who study with HKU SPACE to complete all the law subjects currently required to apply for entry to the Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) programme.

Classes are scheduled to be delivered between September and April.

Teaching will draw on the expertise of both local lecturers and Manchester Metropolitan University lecturers.

Includes teaching by HKU PCLL staff (in their personal capacity).

Litigation procedure and advocacy are included in the programme to provide students with a head-start over their future PCLL class peers.

  • Classes are expected to be delivered in dual-mode, both face-to-face (at HKU SPACE teaching venues) and live-streamed online via Adobe Connect. Depending on the social health situation and other restrictions, some classes may be delivered online only.
Non-Local Higher and Professional Education (Regulation) Ordinance

This is an exempted course 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 this course may lead.

Students must complete 3 full-modules and 2 half-modules.

Full-modules (PCLL programme prerequisites):

  • Commercial Law
  • Business Associations
  • Law of Hong Kong Evidence


  • Hong Kong Civil Procedure with Advocacy*
  • Hong Kong Criminal Procedure with Advocacy*

[*These half-modules will be delivered as complementary precursors to the procedural subjects taught on the PCLL programme. The official title of these half-modules is subject to final confirmation.]

Assessment is by a mixture of coursework and examinations.  

The LLB (Hons) Hong Kong is for students who have completed the Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law (Common Professional Examination)   taught at HKU SPACE and awarded by Manchester Metropolitan University.

Priority for admission is given to students who have completed the Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law (Common Professional Examination) at HKU SPACE. Applications will only be considered from students who have completed other Graduate Diploma in Law programmes if spaces are still available after giving first priority to HKU SPACE students. 

Students who have previously studied this programme are not eligible for admission for a second time. 

It is also the responsibility of applicants to determine their eligibility to study this programme, which is intended for those having the right to live and study in Hong Kong (under current immigration rules, it is very unlikely any overseas applicants will be granted visas to study this programme).

Course Fee
  • HK$46,800 tuition fee and £641 registration fee

With a history of several decades in Hong Kong, the LLB (Hons) Hong Kong has a long and proven track record of successfully preparing our graduates to continue on to enter the PCLL programme and legal practice in Hong Kong.

In recent years large numbers of graduates of the LLB (Hons) Hong Kong have successfully secured places on PCLL programmes at The University of Hong Kong (both full-time and part-time) and other universities, including some highly-prized government-funded places.

Since our graduates can avoid taking many extra conversion exams required of graduates of most other English law courses, they have enjoyed a much smoother pathway towards the PCLL.

Entry to the PCLL programme is competitive and admission criteria are subject to change. For more information, please click here.
