Since 2007, HKU SPACE has been offering preparatory courses for candidates preparing for the Hong Kong Conversion Examination for PCLL Admission.  Online Preparatory Courses serving the same purpose have started to be offered since 2020 and have proved to be equally effective and well-received.  The online courses, taught by experienced and outstanding teachers live via Virtual Classroom, will give more flexibility to students, and allow for more interaction in their learning while keeping the same high standard and effectiveness. Revision of past papers and examiner’s reports will form an important part of the course. 
[Note: The Preparatory Course on Commercial Law Part C will be offered in April 2022.  Preparatory Courses on the three “top-up” subjects—Hong Kong Legal System; Hong Kong Constitutional Law; Hong Kong Land Law — are being planned to be offered in Summer (Jul/Aug/Sep) 2022]
