Press Coverage

Hear from our Graduates

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
Chairman of The Hong Kong Reprographic Rights Licensing Society

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. All this can be applied in my work and useful in advancement of my career path. I sincerely recommend this programme to anyone who would like to pursue lifelong learning.
