Its strength in research was recognised in the 2014 Research Assessment Exercise conducted by the Hong Kong University Grants Committee when it was ranked ahead of all other law schools in Hong Kong with 64% of its research ranked as "world leading" or "internationally significant".
In line with its strategy for planned growth, the Faculty of Law invites applications for appointment as Professor, Associate Professor or Assistant Professor.
