About us


    The Rule of Law Education Project (ROLE) is one of the Knowledge Exchange (KE) initiatives of the Faculty of Law of The University of Hong Kong. The project started in April 2012. We work with legal academics, practitioners, NGO leaders, education experts, members of the Legislative Council and senior liberal studies teachers. 


    Our vision is to enhance Hong Kong citizens’ understanding of the rule of law and its crucial role in ensuring Hong Kong’s status as an international city and one of the major international financial centre, which in turn will help sustain and strengthen the law institutions in Hong Kong. Our mission include:


  • To facilitate communication between legal academics and the general public in Hong Kong through promoting a better understanding of the rule of law in the community.

  • To publish materials on the rule of law which are accessible to the general public.

  • To provide training to teachers, social workers and other community workers in the civil society on the rule of law, legal knowledge and legal values. 

  • To guide law students in disseminating knowledge and values on the rule of law to primary/secondary students and the general public.

  • To engage the general public in the critical review of social events related with the rule of law through the ROLE website and social media platforms.
