The Rhodes Scholarship is the oldest and one of the most prestigious scholarships in the world. There is no shortage of Nobel laureates and heads of state among Rhodes Scholars. The Faculty takes pride in having 7 LLB and 1 JD graduates among the 39 Rhodes Scholars since the Scholarship was introduced in Hong Kong in 1986.
