PCLL Conversion Examinations Preparatory Course (PPC)

PCLL Conversion Examinations Preparatory Course (PPC)


The PPC is designed to prepare students or graduates of LLB (Hons), Graduate Diploma in Law (GDL), MA Law or the Common Professional Examination (CPE) to undertake the necessary PCLL Conversion examinations for admissions into the Postgraduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) in Hong Kong.

The programme is designed with two objectives in mind: to provide candidates with all the content and knowledge for the exam (including comprehensive manuals for each subject) and to focus on writing skills and exam techniques in a series of intensive seminars taking place right before the PCLL Conversion examinations.

The University of Law is the course operator of the Hong Kong programmes, while The Hong Kong Management Association provides teaching venues and administrative support.


20 hours of lectures and face-to-face time per module
