This annual scholarship is one of the many ways that Conyers supports students and future legal practitioners. The aim of this annual scholarship is to encourage the post-graduate pursuit of legal knowledge and recognise outstanding academic performance of students in the area of commercial law. The scholarship is awarded to law students who have excelled among their peers and demonstrate great potential in the legal profession.

“We take pride in supporting our local students and we are delighted to recognize Calvin’s achievement and his exceptional talent. He has been carefully selected by the University’s Faculty of Law Board and is well-deserving of this recognition.” said Christopher Bickley, Partner and Head of Conyers’ Hong Kong Office.

“I am pleasantly surprised to be awarded this prize. I am delighted that my hard work was recognised, and I sincerely thank Conyers for the award,” he said. “I am an accountant by profession, and I believed the training offered by the Law School of HKU could enhance my job performance and career development. I also wanted to meet other classmates who came from different fields to exchange thoughts and ideas about various issues covered in the programme. All students, even those without previous legal training, will benefit from this programme. ”
