CUHK LAW's PCLL programme is skills-focused and tailored to prepare students for practice. CUHK LAW also offers four Master of Laws (LLM) programmes which allow students to specialise in Chinese Business Law, in Common Law, in Energy and Environmental Law, and in International Economic Law. Furthermore, two research postgraduate programmes are available at CUHK LAW, i.e. the Master of Philosophy in Laws (MPhil) and the Doctor of Philosophy in Laws (PhD).
