Programme Details

What is GBA Lawyer Qualification Examination?

The State Council General Office announced in October 2020 the details regarding the pilot scheme that allows those who pass the GBA Lawyer Qualification Examination to participate in civil and commercial legal matters (including litigation and non-litigation matters) in the nine mainland cities of the Greater Bay Area (“GBA”). In relation to Hong Kong residents and solicitors, those who satisfy the following criteria will be eligible to sit the special examination:

(a) permanent Hong Kong residents who are Chinese citizens;
(b) uphold the constitution of The People’s Republic of China and the Basic Law;
(c) solicitors admitted by the High Court of Hong Kong and properly registered on the roll of solicitors and have not been suspended from practice;
(d) have 5 years or above post-qualification practice experience;
(e) Good professional ethics and no disciplinary records for professional misconduct;
(f) Able to write legal documents in Chinese and conduct business activities in Mandarin.

Upon passing of the GBA Qualification Examination, the GBA lawyers can be employed by the Mainland law firms or the partnership associations between Hong Kong/ Macao law firms and Mainland law firms in the nine Mainland cities in the GBA.
