Hague Conference on Private International Law (HCCH)

Since December 2020, a standing arrangement has been put in place with the HCCH for seconding Hong Kong legal professionals in both the public and private sectors to the Permanent Bureau of the HCCH at The Hague, the Netherlands. The period of secondment is normally 6 to 12 months. Depending on the circumstances, particularly in order to familiarize the secondees with the work of the HCCH, a short period of services or training at the Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific (the ROAP), located at the Former French Mission Building in the Legal Hub, may be undertaken by secondees prior to commencement of services at the Permanent Bureau in The Hague, which may be counted within or in addition to the period of secondment.
