Faculty

Locations & IT Facilities

The Faculty of Law is located on twin sites: its headquarters is at the University’s main campus in Shatin; while postgraduate programmes are delivered at the Graduate Law Centre in Hong Kong’s central business district.

Both sites have state of the art teaching facilities providing our students with an ideal learning environment.

Headquarters

The Faculty’s headquarters is based in the Lee Shau Kee Building in Shatin.   The teaching facilities include a moot court, a legal resources centre, lecture theatres, classrooms and breakout rooms. 

The CUHK Graduate Law Centre

The CUHK Graduate Law Centre is situated on the second floor of the Bank of America Tower in Central where the teaching facilities mirror those provided at the headquarters in Shatin.

In addition to being home to our taught postgraduate students, the Graduate Law Centre also provides an ideal environment for corporate training, executive events, academic seminars and conferences.

Teaching Facilities

Foremost among the teaching facilities are the moot courts which provide students with a unique insight into the courtroom environment. There is a moot court at each of our locations and these are specifically designed for advocacy and mooting training.

Each of the moot courts has its own digital conferencing and multimedia broadcasting systems enabling their proceedings to be broadcast to other venues (for example, other lecture theatres or classrooms) and over the internet to individual students. [More]
