The objective of the Bachelor in Law is to provide an understanding of modern society through political, social, historical and philosophical perspectives and prepare students for successful careers in the legal profession.

As language is core to the degree programme, a language course has been integrated to expand our students’ capacity in this area, which will stand them in good stead for further study or international careers in the legal profession.

To supplement academic study, visits to judicial, administrative and corporate institutions coupled with visits by industry speakers are organised for students to learn about and experience the practical side of the legal profession
