Hong Kong Chapter

The Hong Kong Chapter was first established in 2012 following a visit from the President of the Law Council. The Chapter has now grown to over 60 members. The Chapter Convenor is Anthony Chow.

The Hong Kong Chapters seeks to provide an opportunity for Australian lawyers based overseas to meet, network, and filter back issues of concern regarding the Australian legal profession by hosting a variety of useful functions for overseas lawyers.

The President and other Executive members of the Law Council of Australia often visit the Hong Kong Chapter to discuss the Chapter’s upcoming activities and share updates on developments in the Hong Kong and Australian legal profession.
