Why I Started my Law Studies on the Certificate in Legal Studies

"People often ask me the same question: Why did I start my law studies on the Certificate in Legal Studies (General Stream) instead of using my bachelor's degree to go directly to higher-level legal studies? My answer is simple and practical: The Certificate in Legal Studies is a preparatory course that equips you for the pathway to the PCLL and legal practice. It is a chance to get into a routine of doing coursework, reading materials and attending evening classes after a long day of work. Once you have adapted to this schedule, you can handle the exams much more easily. Needless to say, the better your results, the higher your chance of securing a place on the PCLL. So I am very grateful to have chosen Certificate in Legal Studies to begin my journey to the PCLL and legal practice."

After starting her law studies on the Certificate in Legal Studies (General Stream)Jasmin Chan achieved Distinctions on both the Graduate Diploma in English and Hong Kong Law and the full-time PCLL at HKU in Wills, Trusts and Estate Planning.
