I have been wondering if I stand any chance to apply for PCLL with working experience.
I graduated from a US college and completed my CUHK JD degree quite some years ago. My result at JD was not satisfactory at all (below 3.0 to be frank), and I have since then worked in the finance industry, mostly sitting within the legal and compliance department. What are the chances for City U PCLL or HKU part time PCLL?
Thanks a lot!
Study a LLM with good grade and attempt IELTS with good score in writing may sometimes help. You may ask for advice from PCLL programme coordinators and see how you can improve your chance.
For HKU the best you can try is part time pcll. For full-time pcll, 3.0 is even marginal for HKU graduates, not to mention CUHK with a much higher average GPA. A good news is that next year is still the double cohort year with pcll places increased. According to HKU Law Faculty, the admission standard for this year (also double cohort) is actually slightly lower than previous years, with more places offered yet even less applicants compared with previous years. This is also true from my own observation.
“It is also completely inaccurate that HKU gives credit to students who have training contracts. Training contract is at best a 求情理由 where your mark falls slightly below the borderline”
I can’t see your rationale that if TC can be a 求情理由 but it does not amount to giving credit
HKU part time PCLL has been cancelled two years, mean HKU has no part time PCLL. This is wrong. HKU does offer 2 years part time PCLL.
• Lowest score required for full time PCLL: around 3.0 (Law GPA)(HKU LLB Graduate)
• Score required for government-sponsored placed: around 3.25 (CGPA)Hope this helps.
Maybe you can consider the career path of Chartered Secretary (HKICS)?
Having a legal education background does help….
