HKU ROLE Seminar 2021

ROLE School Seminar 2021


The Rule of Law Education Project (ROLE) started in April 2012 and was revamped in 2020. We aim at enhancing public understanding of the rule of law through different educational activities. To date, we have organized more than 100 seminars and lectures for secondary schools throughout Hong Kong. The purpose of this project is to promote a better understanding of the rule of law among secondary school students, as well as to give our law students practical teaching and lecture delivery experience.

ROLE seminars are designed and conducted by HKU law students under the guidance of Faculty of Law supervisors, to ensure that learning activities are tailor-made to meet the needs of each secondary school. The seminars are free of charge, so are the accompanying written teaching materials which we will provide to the school after the seminar.

This year, the details of this program are as follows:


Date: June 21 – July 9, 2021
Duration: 60-90 min
Format: Face-to-Face (if COVID restrictions allow) or Online

Please note: If face-to-face mode is preferred, we will make arrangements to deliver online if public health situations so require.

Target audience: Form 4 to Form 6 students
Topics of the seminar: We will select the final topic according to your preferences and our availability. Please note that the titles below provide the main themes; final contents of the presentation will be determined by HKU law students who prepare the materials under our supervision.
