Free Legal Advice Scheme on HKU Campus
The Faculty of Law of University of Hong Kong runs a Free Legal Advice Scheme on campus under the Duty Lawyer Service. The objective of the Scheme is two-fold: (1) to offer preliminary legal advice to members of the University or the public having actual legal problems involving the laws of Hong Kong as to their legal position; and (2) through handling real cases, to allow our law students taking the Clinical Legal Education Course an opportunity to develop their lawyering skills and to promote pro bono culture.
The Free Legal Advice Scheme on HKU Campus has given preliminary legal advice to many types of cases including contract and business law disputes, divorce and custody issues, employment law and consumer rights, traffic accidents and workers’ compensation, property ownership and inheritance rights, defamation, intellectual property, criminal and judicial review and so on.Back to News
