DISTINGUISHED PROFESSIONAL MENTORS PROGRAMME
Background & Objectives
The Sir TL Yang Society Distinguished Professional Mentor Programme plays an indispensable role in shaping the success of our LLB graduates. It is designed to give individual LLB students the opportunity to meet and receive advice from professionals in law. Through this initiative, the LLB students can develop the necessary skills and confidence to be effective and ethical professionals.
Mentors and Mentees
As part of that programme each of our undergraduate students is also paired with a “Distinguished Professional Mentor” who is available to them during their last three years of study at CUHK LAW.
These mentors are drawn from the legal community in Hong Kong, including the judiciary, solicitors and barristers, the government and businesses and other commercial and non-governmental institutions. All undergraduate students are first introduced to their mentors at a special reception at the end of the student’s first year of study and thereafter the initiative is designed to give them the opportunity to obtain practical guidance on issues associated with a future legal career and to help ease them into professional life.

Each of our undergraduate students is also paired with an Academic Advisor who is a designated member of CUHK LAW. Academic Advisors advise students on all aspects of academic development and each student meets with their academic advisor at least once a term. Our academic advisors take their responsibility seriously and students should feel confident that they can approach them for help if they have any questions or issues they want to discuss such as choice of elective courses, examination results and academic progress.
