ROLE Secondary School Seminars 2021

Jan 29 ROLE talk 2.jpg

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.
