18LC aims to foster exceptional talent and promotes professionalism, collegiality, and diversity amongst pupils. Our goal is directed towards supporting pupils to acquire skillsets and build awareness of barristers’ distinctive competencies, enabling pupil barristers to flourish over time and contribute to the legal profession in Hong Kong and beyond. Pupils may be expected to be integrated to Chambers’ work and life, and will be invited to Chambers’ professional and social events.
