Global Dialogues Sapientia 2021

Dear Students and Members of the Faculty,

Government and Laws Committee HKU proudly presents “Global Dialogues Sapientia 2021: Eminent Jurists”, our signature legal event in 2021 which features a series of dialogues with sitting and former Justices of International and National Apex courts.
