HKU Law’s LLM(CR) Awarded UGC Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships (2022-23)
In 2020 the University Grants Committee launched the Targeted Taught Postgraduate Programmes Fellowships Scheme to promote further studies in priority areas for the development of Hong Kong and to encourage more innovative and multi-disciplinary programmes that are beneficial to society.
The Master of Laws in Compliance and Regulation (LLM(CR)) of the Faculty of Law has again been approved to participate in the Scheme, marking the third consecutive year it has been selected. The LLM(CR) programme balances theory and practice to strengthen students’ insights on how domestic and global trends in regulation and compliance shape the financial industry.
Fellowships awarded under the Scheme substantially subsidize the cost of the tuition fee. In addition, students selected as Fellows have the opportunity to participate in the Compliance & Regulation Fellowship Association. This allows them to network with current and past Fellows, who typically have around 6 to 10 years of industry experience. Fellows can also work more closely with Faculty staff throughout their studies.
As face-to-face teaching has been resumed, HKU Law is delighted to welcome in person the 2020 and 2021 LLM(CR) Fellows and to wish them all success in their studies and in their ongoing careers.
