Honourable grests spoke at the LLB Students and Graduates Gathering

With the continued rise in enrolment in the Preparatory Programme for Bachelor of Laws (LLB) over the past years, SPEED is committed to providing value-added services for its students.

A seminar on "Law meets Business - how legal knowledge can empower a commercial career" was held on 26 August 2006. Presented by Mr C.K. Cho, a previous LLB graduate of the University of London, the former Head of Research and Management Services of the Operation Department in Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC), a qualified barrister in the UK and Hong Kong, and CEO of Aida International Consultants Limited, the seminar attracted a full house with over 170 attendees. Participants' response was overwhelming and many found Mr Cho's extensive knowledge and experience in the industry inspiring.

Last year, SPEED is proud to have the first batch of LLB graduates who joined its Preparatory Programme three years ago. They acknowledge with gratitude that this programme has not only helped them develop their legal knowledge, but has also enhanced their analytical and problem-solving skills in both legal and non-legal settings. As for new students of the programme, many of them joined through referrals from friends who are either existing or past students.
