LAWASIA Conference (6-8 November)


President have also taken the opportunity during my participation at the POLA Summit to promote to our Asian counterparts the LAWASIA Conference that will be held in Hong Kong from 6 to 8 November.


It has been 12 years since the LAWASIA Conference was last held in Hong Kong in 2007 and we all very much look forward to hosting this international event in November.  President strongly encourage our Hong Kong members to spread the word and actively participate in the Conference in every way that you can. No other time is better than now to showcase to the world our unity, ability and determination in contributing to the success of international events to be held in Hong Kong, such as the LAWASIA Conference in November.


The LAWASIA Conference has been accredited with 14 CPD points in total. In the event that members can only attend particular sessions of the Conference, they will be able to claim the points awarded to those sessions.


The Law Society also offers, on a first come first served basis, sponsorships of 75% of the registration fee to trainee solicitors and solicitors admitted for 5 years or less and sponsorships of 60% of the registration fee to solicitors admitted for more than 5 years and registered foreign lawyers. Further, the early bird discount still applies (until 31 August 2019). This is an opportunity not to be missed. Please register as soon as you can at the Conference website.


For law firms that are interested in supporting the Conference, the sponsorship prospectus that contains a variety of options has also been published and is posted on the Conference website as well. Please take a look and if you require further details, please do not hesitate to contact our Secretariat.
