A question I and students with business and finance backgrounds are frequently asked is how I can generate an excellent return on my educational investment. My answer to this question is to invest in yourself when you are still young. The CUHK Juris Doctor programme gives business students an excellent opportunity to break into the legal profession, which is a professional path that offers tremendous upside potential. The Faculty of Law is highly international, with professors from solid academic and industry backgrounds. As a cradle for an increasing number of Hong Kong’s legal elite, the JD is developing an increasingly strong alumni network. A business background also provides a valuable synergy if one aspires to be a solicitor handling large corporate transactions or IPO exercises, or a barrister cutting through complex commercial disputes. The Juris Doctor program, together with a sound business background, gives prospective talent an unparalleled edge for development in various commercial disciplines in a knowledge-based society.”
