CCPL was established in 1995 as a non-profit virtual research centre in the Faculty of Law, The University of Hong Kong. Its goals are to (1) advance knowledge on public law and human rights issues primarily from the perspectives of international and comparative law and practice; (2) encourage and facilitate collaborative work within the Faculty of Law, The University of Hong Kong, and the broader community in the fields of comparative and public law; and (3) make the law more accessible to the community and more effective as an agent of social change.
What a year 2020 has been! In these difficult times, the Centre for Comparative and Public Law (CCPL) at The University of Hong Kong will continue to curate and showcase our events via Zoom... View the latest CCPL Newsletter, in which CCPL is pleased to share with you highlights from the events CCPL held last semester as well as information on upcoming events for Fall 2020. CCPL looks forward to seeing you soon at CCPL events!
