The 2024 Chinese Mooting Competition, co-organised by the Faculty of Law and the School of Chinese at the University of Hong Kong, was successfully concluded on 13 April 2024 (Saturday). This is the first ever Chinese mooting competition held for university law students in Hong Kong, and is a milestone in Hong Kong legal education history.

44 students studying for the LLB, JD and PCLL programmes participated in the competition that day in teams of two. The competition question involves the relationship between visual intrusion and private nuisance, where competitors are required to make written and oral submissions as to how the Fearn case in the UK Supreme Court and its legal tests are applicable in Hong Kong.

The competition is honoured with the presence of many judicial officers and legal professionals as judges and prize presenters. All judges unanimously praised the outstanding performance of the competitors. Eventually, the overall champion is Ms Leung Sze Ching Jerrie (LLB 4) and Mr Wong Tsz Shing Oscar (BSocSc(Govt&Laws)&LLB 5). The champion for best written submissions goes to Mr Lum Yu Chung (BSocSc(Govt&Laws)&LLB 3) and Ms Wong King Wai (BSocSc(Govt&Laws)&LLB 3), and the champion for best advocate goes to Mr Tsui Zealot Kenneth (BSocSc(Govt&Laws)&LLB 5). The full list of prize awardees can be viewed via the website of HK LawLang:

Hong Kong is the only common law jurisdiction in the world that operates in both Chinese and English, and the development of legal Chinese is of crucial importance. The Faculty of Law has always strived to push for the development of bilingual legal system in Hong Kong, including the offering of courses on legal Chinese and legal language, and organising activities related to Chinese advocacy.
