HK's Rhodes Scholar 2015 from our Faculty of Law

Congratulations to Geoffrey Yeung (LLB, BBA(Law) 2014; PCLL 2015) who was selected as the 2015 Rhodes Scholar from Hong Kong.  He will join 82 other Rhodes Scholar from around the world and is the only one currently studying at an university in China.  The Rhodes Scholarship website reports that Geoffrey "aspires to become a human rights lawyer in Hong Kong, to advance civil rights and liberties, as well as to continue to stand with various disadvantaged and marginalised groups in making their voices heard in society".  The Apple Daily reported that he impressed the selection committee with his energy and personal commitment to working with disadvantaged members of society, as well as his exceptional academic results.  Geoffrey was a member of the Centre for Comparative and Public Law research teams led by Professor Simon Young that completed research consultancy projects for the Independent Commission Against Corruption's Centre of Anti-Corruption Studies and the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau.  Geoffrey will complete his BCL at Oxford.  In a short note to us, he writes, "whatever I get from my experience at Oxford, I will give it back to society in any way I can."
