Flag of Hong KongThere are many reasons for students from Hong Kong to study law in Ireland.  Ireland is an English-speaking country with a legal tradition derived from English common law.  Hong Kong students will be well placed to explore the great cities of Europe, including London, Paris and Berlin – the birthplaces of the common law and civil law legal traditions.  Galway is also a safe and friendly environment in which to study.
