The LLM(CFL) programme combines academic expertise in corporate and financial law, and provides comprehensive resources for the study of the law and related issues encountered within a sophisticated commercial setting. Hong Kong is one of the world’s leading financial centres; its vibrant economy, respected system of justice, and world class financial regulatory regime together offer an outstanding background for study matched only by the most highly-regarded jurisdictions.

Students are required to complete 72 credits, including two 9-credit compulsory courses and a capstone experience in accordance with the regulations and syllabus. Students may also choose courses from any of the specialist programmes, but in any event, no more than two courses from other LLM specialist programmes.

Please refer to the Regulations and Syllabus of your respective intake for more details.

Remark: Not all courses will be offered in any given year. You may also refer to the course schedule per academic year for actual classes available.
