ROLE Secondary School Seminars 2022

Jan 29 ROLE talk 2.jpg

The HKU Rule of Law Education Project (ROLE) was established in April 2012 and was revamped in 2020. The objective of ROLE is to enhance public understanding towards the crux of the rule of law and various basic legal concepts through different educational activities, as well as to give our law students practical teaching and lecture delivery experience. To date, we have organised more than 150 face-to-face and virtual seminars and workshop for, mainly, secondary schools students, non-governmental organisations, and other community organisations.


ROLE seminars are designed and conducted by law students under the guidance of supervisors within the Faculty of Law of The University of Hong Kong. We create tailored learning materials and activities to meet the needs of individual secondary schools. The seminars are free of charge, so are the accompanying written teaching materials which we will provide to the school after the seminar upon request.
