CityU of Hong Kong School of Law and Georgetown University launch Collaborative Degree Programme

The CityU School of Law has established two collaborative degree programmes with Georgetown University to offer the CityU JD/ Georgetown LLM and CityU LLB/Georgetown LLM.

These collaborative programmes are a testimony to the School’s strong global alliances and provide CityU students with an opportunity to obtain professional degrees in the United States and Hong Kong. They will enhance students’ employability in both jurisdictions with an overall reduction in study time. With proper planning, the JD/LLM programme can be completed in three years of full-time study while the LLB/LLM programme may be completed in four years.

It is expected that the first cohort of students will be able to enroll in the Georgetown LLM programme in the academic year 2022/23. Details of the admission processes may be found here (

Professor TAN Cheng-Han, SC, Dean of the CityU School of Law said: “We are very pleased to provide our students with another high quality programme. Not only will this collaboration with one of the top law schools in the US enhance the education that eligible students can receive, this partnership also demonstrates the confidence that the international legal community has in the CityU Law brand by admitting students to Georgetown’s LLM programme before completion of the CityU LLB or JD.”
