Bachelor of Laws (LL.B.) Preparation Courses (University of London)
HKU SPACE is a Recognised Teaching Centre of the University of London and has been providing high quality and effective Preparation Courses for the LLB Programme for more than five decades.  

The University of London LLB is a well-respected qualification and is accepted as a pre-requisite academic qualification to the professional stage in many Common Law jurisdictions.  Many of our graduates have been admitted to practise in Hong Kong and England and Wales. There are also graduates who, by relying on the University of London LLB studied with HKU SPACE, are admitted to practise in other jurisdictions.  Many students find the logical problem-solving skills gained from studying the degree a springboard for other professions as well.  LLB degree is studied not only by students who hope to become lawyers but also by those who feel that a Law qualification would help them in their present profession or who are interested in the modules offered.
