Ms Charlotte Kong
Barrister-at-law, Cheng Huan Q.C., S.C.’s Chambers

LLM International and Commercial Law offered by University of Greenwich helps build student’s legal knowledge in general with focus on commercial, intellectual property and competition laws. A key factor I enrolled this programme was to develop knowledge in intellectual property law and competition law which were not available in my LLB studies. Students may tailor their studies to their interests, through independent research on the dissertation topic of their own choices. It is set to be completed in one year and it is a perfect fit for my short-term career plan – I highly recommend it!

Dr Sharon Wong

As a senior management, the LLM programme is crucial in a way that enriches and extends my knowledge in areas such as company law and intellectual property law.
