CUHK LAW Launches New Master of Laws (LLM) in Legal History Programme

From 2022-23, CUHK LAW will offer a brand-new LLM in Legal History Programme. This LLM – one of the only such programmes globally – is designed to equip students with expertise in both the substance and the methodology of transnational legal history research.

The LLM in Legal History is an elite programme which admits only a small number of high-quality students. Unlike traditional taught postgraduate programmes, the LLM in Legal History has a hybrid structure, combining classroom learning and research elements.

Professor Lutz-Christian Wolff, Dean of CUHK LAW and Wei Lun Professor of Law, said, "We are very excited about this new course of study which covers a very important legal discipline and which is a response to increasing interests in and needs for legal history training in Asia and beyond."

In addition to their classes, students will complete a substantial research project under the supervision of a member of the Faculty, accounting for half of their credits. Through their involvement in the programme students will acquire substantial research, writing and presentation skills, paving the way to successful academic, policy and practice careers.
