1. PCLL PLACES
For the academic year 2024-2025, places are available in two categories: –
2. CHOICE OF PCLL PROGRAMMES IN HONG KONG
|2.1||If you wish to apply for a place on our PCLL programme, you must do so directly to us.|
|2.2||In your application you will be asked to rank your preferences amongst the 3 PCLL providers. We will only consider applications where CUHK is ranked as the first choice. This will however include applications where you are released by your first choice or where you change your preferences so that CUHK becomes your first choice.|
If you wish to change the ranking of your preferences amongst the 3 PCLL providers after you have made your application, you must obtain a written release from your first preference PCLL provider.
WARNING: Although you may apply to more than one PCLL provider, you must select only one PCLL provider as your first preference. At the close of the application period, the three PCLL providers will exchange lists of applicants who have made them first preference. If you have made more than one PCLL provider as your first choice, you will be disqualified by all three PCLL providers from this year’s application process.

Handling of Information
4. APPLICATION DEADLINE AND ADMISSION OFFERS
Applications are dealt with by our admissions panel and we make conditional offers at various stages. Those conditions ordinarily relate to one or more of i) the quality of the law qualification, ii) the passing of outstanding Conversion exams and iii) the provision of a compliant IELTS score report. We may make early offers to applicants with outstanding academic merit before the application deadline of 30 April 2024. The bulk of offers is made in June/July.
Many applicants will be in the final year of their law qualification studies and (save for early offerees) we can only make admission decisions on the basis of their academic performance known to the admissions panel as at 30 April 2024. Thus it can happen that a student is not offered a place who achieves a final result which might have qualified for an offer had it been known at the time of consideration of the application. We try to reduce the chances of this happening by placing a number of applicants on a Waiting List and those applicants may be offered places (the decisions will be made in mid or late August 2024) if such are available. Such places may become available if applicants to whom conditional offers have been made fail to satisfy the conditions of those offers. We send rejection letters to those students who are neither made offers nor placed on the Waiting List..
