To strengthen support for students and to enhance effectiveness, an element of voluntary submission of assignment (a past paper question) is introduced in the upcoming prep courses. Students’ submissions will be marked and commented on by the course teachers.
What is Hong Kong Conversion Examination for PCLL Admission?
Intending candidates holding non-Hong Kong law degrees or equivalent qualifications acceptable for the Hong Kong Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) admission are required to demonstrate their competence in nine Core Subjects and three Top-up Subjects, as prescribed by the Standing Committee on Legal Education and Training, before they are eligible to apply for the PCLL programmes offered by the three local law schools. Competences in some of these Core Subjects— Commercial Law (Parts A, B and C); Evidence; Business Associations-- missing from a candidate’s law qualification curriculum and in the three required Top-up Subjects— Hong Kong Constitutional Law; Hong Kong Legal System; Hong Kong Land Law— can be obtained by passing the relevant subjects in the Hong Kong Conversion Examination for PCLL Admission.
Where can I find the examination details?
Examinations in these subjects will be offered twice a year. For details, please download the Information Package from the Conversion Examination website: (http://www.pcea.com.hk). Examination enquiries can be made to the PCLL Conversion Examination Board, c/o PCLL Conversion Examination and Administration Limited (Telephone: 3761‑1123; Email: email@example.com).
Is course attendance required?
While a candidate is not required to attend any course in order to pass any of these examinations, proper tuition and guided revision will greatly increase the chance of passing.
