1. The Des Voeux Chambers Oxford Junior Scholarships will once again be offered in 2018-2019. The scholarships provide selected student(s) with a 6-week mini-pupillage at Des Voeux Chambers, together with return airfare between London and Hong Kong, and a financial stipend to be awarded upon satisfactory completion of the mini-pupillage. The Scholarships aim to enable students of the highest achievement to experience the Hong Kong Bar and the Hong Kong legal jurisdiction. In addition, Des Voeux Chambers will continue to offer distinguished students with the opportunity to apply for full scholarships to undertake postgraduate studies.
2. To allow interested students to find out more about the Scholarships, and life at the Hong Kong Bar more generally, Des Voeux Chambers is pleased to invite students to meet with visiting members of Chambers over an informal dinner to be held in Oxford on Monday 22 October 2018.
3. Over dinner, members of both the Inner and Junior Bar will share with students their experiences at the Hong Kong Bar and answer questions about legal training and practice in Hong Kong more generally and with Des Voeux Chambers in particular.
