Public Education and Capacity Building

Young Professional Overseas Enrichment Programme (“YPOEP”)

Nurturing of local lawyers and dispute resolution practitioners is an important part of DoJ’s policies. Under YPOEP, DoJ will sponsor young professionals and dispute resolution practitioners to participate in overseas international conferences related to law, mediation or arbitration to enhance their legal knowledge and to broaden their horizons with opportunities to build networks with legal professionals around the world. It is hoped that sponsored participants could contribute their knowledge or skills they have acquired to the society, thereby fostering exchanges in the local community. The sponsored young professionals are required to report to DoJ and submit relevant reports and documents upon returning to Hong Kong. Details of the programme and the application procedures will be announced in due course.
