Law 報考法律

法律學是一門研究特定社會現象及其規律的學科。所有秩序都可以是一種「法律」,而法律學就是研究法律的法則。法律學相關的大學課程包含法律哲學、法律史學以及法律科學等三大部門。因為研究對象都是社會上的現象,因此法律學與政治學、經濟學、財政學、社會學和心理學等社會科學有相當密切的關連。

法律是社稷之本。無論是因為想匡扶正義,還是希望得到一份體面的工作,總有不少學生憧憬於法律學。然而,本港三間大學提供的法律學位數目少,競爭激烈,很多學生未能入讀心儀的法律學系。而香港作為英國曾經的殖民地,兩地法律基礎接近,故此很多學生會選擇到英國/澳洲修讀法律學。

香港持有法律執業證書的專業人士約有9,000位,通常受聘於政府法律部門、公共機構或於私人公司執業。香港法律專業分為律師大律師,出庭發言權有不同限制,他們的專業水平均受香港律師會及香港大律師公會監管。法律行政人員亦是法律專業其中一個重要成員,為律師和大律師事務所等機構提供各種的支援服務。

職責

香港的律師分為事務律師(律師)和訟務律師(大律師),律師與大律師最大的區別在於是否有權代表當事人在法庭發表代理或辯護意見。大律師是指受當事人委託或法院指定,依法協助當事人進行訴訟,出庭辯護;而律師負責為個人、公司和企業提供法律顧問服務等,主要工作分別如下:

律師

  • 負責於法庭進行民事或刑事起訴和答辯
  • 負責處理相關訴訟的準備工作,如整理證據、會晤證人、草擬答辯等
  • 向當事人提供口頭或書面上的法律指導
  • 提供法律諮詢及一般事務,如註冊公司商標、遺產託管和繼承、草擬遺囑等
  • 辦理房地產買賣和物業按揭,擬訂和審核合約,見證簽名蓋章

大律師

  • 為律師提供民事或刑事的指導和法律意見
  • 與律師幫助當事人研究和分析案件,編寫起訴狀或答辯狀
  • 代表當事人陳詞,進行聆訊

畢業後如何註冊

Becoming Barristers

There are different ways of getting qualified to be admitted as a barrister in Hong Kong. 

According to section 27(1) of the Legal Practitioners Ordinance (Cap. 159), a person is qualified for admission as a barrister if he:

(a) is a holder of a Postgraduate Certificate in Law (PCLL);
(b) is a solicitor in Hong Kong; or
(c) is an overseas lawyer

Post-graduate Certificate in Laws

Post-graduate Certificate in Laws (PCLL) is a pre-requisite for entering the Bar Profession. It is a practical legal training programme which allows its graduates to proceed to pupillage.

A person, who has completed his Bachelor of Laws (LLB) or Juris Doctor (JD) or equivalent legal studies in other common law jurisdictions, is eligible for admission to the PCLL in one of the three universities, namely the University of Hong Kong, the City University of Hong Kong or the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

Becoming a Barrister

One of the ways to become a lawyer in the UK is to become a barrister. A barrister must first complete Academic Training—meaning a law degree or an unrelated degree followed by a conversion course (or Graduate Diploma in Law). Instead of training in a law firm like a solicitor, a barrister candidate will take the Bar Course Aptitude Test (BCAT) and, if successful, join an Inn of Court.

Once the candidate joins one of the four Inns of Court (Middle Temple, Inner Temple, Gray’s Inn and Lincoln’s Inn) they undertake the Bar Professional Training Course (BPTC) over one or two years for Vocational Training. Once this is successfully completed and any extra training is undertaken, the Inn “Calls” you to the Bar.

Once you’re Called to the Bar, you become an unregistered barrister. You can’t practise as a barrister until completing the final stage—the pupillage. This is practical work experience/Work-Based Learning under an experienced barrister, and it’s very competitive to get a place.

After one year, the supervising barrister can recommend that you’re ready to work as a barrister. You can then apply for a Practising Certificate. The barrister can then apply for ‘tenancy’ of a set of Chambers—a group of Counsel who share the costs of premises and support staff, while remaining individually self-employed.

Solicitor

Law Degree Graduates – the Traditional Route to Becoming a Solicitor in the UK

Wherever they wish to become a UK lawyer, most people start their journey with obtaining a university law degree (LLB). This known as the Qualifying Law Degree (QLD), which can be completed in one of the 100+ institutions offering this degree in the UK.

The next step is to complete the Legal Practice Course (LPC) which is the vocational stage of training, and finally a two-year training contract at a law firm prior to qualification.

It is possible to obtain a law degree/complete a training contract in one jurisdiction (such as Scotland) and later practise law in England and Wales so long as an appropriate conversion course is undertaken in England or Wales.

To become a practicing lawyer in Canada, you need two to four years of a university program and a Juris Doctor/Bachelor of Laws degree from a recognized law school. Next, you must complete a period of articling, a bar admission course and exam, and be licensed in the province/territory where you plan to work. Expect a commitment of six to eight or more years.

Students must complete a Bachelor of Laws (L.L.B.) program or Juris Doctor (J.D.) program in order to qualify for bar membership in any Canadian province or territory. This generally takes three years to complete.

To become a lawyer in New Zealand, you are required to:

  • complete a Bachelor of Laws Degree (LLB) or LLB (Honours) degree approved by the New Zealand Council of Legal Education
  • complete a Professional Legal Studies Course
  • obtain a Certificate of Completion from the NZCLE, and
  • be admitted to the roll of Barristers and Solicitors of the High Court of New Zealand and
  • hold a current practising certificate issued by the New Zealand Law Society (NZLS).

To be admitted to the bar you must complete a three-month Professional Legal Studies course after completing the LLB or LLB(Hons) degree. There are currently two providers of this course:
The Institute of Professional Legal Studies
The College of Law (New Zealand)
