Law Mentorship Programme

The Law Mentorship Programme (“the Programme”) was first launched in 2002. The Programme is jointly organized by the Faculty of Law and The University of Hong Kong Law Alumni Association (‘the Law Alumni Association”). It aims to provide law students with the opportunity to meet legal practitioners and judges and to enhance their educational, social and personal growth through a supportive relationship with their mentors. Over the years, the Law Alumni Association has provided tremendous support and assistance in the organization and running of the Programme, particularly in engaging the support of members of the profession and the Judiciary, many of whom are our alumni. 

For the academic year 2018-19, 46 mentors and 85 mentees participated in the Programme.  The Faculty and the Law Alumni Association will organize the Mentorship Dinners on 26 February 2019. It is expected that the mentees will take the initiative to organize at least one more gathering before that. It is also hoped that apart from these two gatherings, individual mentees and their mentors can develop further relationship through other communications or meetings. 

1. Purposes of the programme
