法律 Law

香港現時約有6,500名持有執業證書的事務律師。以香港總人口為七百萬計算,每1,100名香港居民中便有一名律師。過去五年間,香港每年平均約有380人獲認許為律師。執業律師人數的按年增長率平均為3.6%。而大律師(訟務律師)更只有1000人左右。

擬取得律師資格的人士,必須於香港大學、香港城市大學、香港中文大學或其他認可之普通法適用地區之院校取得法學士學位(LLB)(如所持之學位並非法律學,可再通過Common Professional Examination of England and Wales (CPE) 之考試),並取得法學專業證書 / 法律學深造證書(PCLL)。在取得所需學歷後,仍要再完成兩年的實習律師(Trainee Solicitor)實習期,表現良好,才可獲認許在香港以律師身分執業。

因為英國是普通法及英語的發源地,所以想到海外修讀法律都會以英國為首選。而且英國大部份大學都提供法學士學位課程,令有意投身法律行業都學生得到充份的機會。

而澳洲的法學士課程近年亦成為學生的其中一個目的地。由於在澳洲成為律師的薪酬非常高,而且容易獲得澳洲居民資格,所以受到學生的歡迎。在澳洲修讀法學士學位課程為4年。

學生在海外完成法學士學士後,如沒有參加香港各大學舉辦的法學士課程/法學士雙學位課程/JD課程,就需要修讀以下3個科目並取得及格成績,以證明自己對以下3個銜接科目有充分的認識:

學校介紹:

 

英國 - University of Nottingham

Law LLB (3 years full time)

This course meets the demand from highly qualified students who wish to study law as an academic discipline, irrespective of whether they wish to pursue a career in legal practice.

You may apply at the beginning of year two to be transferred to one of the school's four-year degree courses, which incorporate a year abroad studying the law of that country. The school has partner law schools in Australia, Canada, China, Europe, New Zealand, Singapore and the USA.

This is highly competitive and transfer should not be assumed. For those intending to follow a legal career, the grounding in different legal systems will prove very attractive to prospective employers and, in particular, the leading international firms of solicitors.
