Abstract / Video
In October 2014 the Faculty of Law at The Chinese University of Hong Kong held the first of a series of seminars covering topics around the use of Chinese customary law in present Hong Kong. Much to the surprise of even the organizers over the course of the next four years the seminar series developed into the most successful continuing professional development scheme in the history of Hong Kong legal education. This paper discusses how the seminar series originated, how it developed, why it has been so successful, plans its future development as well as general conclusions which can be drawn from this experience.
