Exploring new business opportunities for members has always been one of the many important tasks of the Law Society. The Law Society signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Mongolian Bar Association (“MBA”) in 2017. To foster collaboration and strengthen exchange between our respective members in the two jurisdictions, we launched our first reciprocal study tour this year.
To kick-off this programme, the Law Society received the MBA delegation and organised a half-day joint seminar in Hong Kong for the delegation and our members on 29 March. Focusing on law firm management and the use of technology in the legal sector, the joint seminar attracted around 50 participants. Visits to the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre and Independent Commission Against Corruption were also arranged for the MBA delegates to better understand the arbitration, mediation and anti-corruption practices in Hong Kong.
With the significant rise in the global economy, the Law Society will continue to work closely with the MBA and other overseas lawyers associations to provide information exchange platforms and explore business opportunities for members, as well as to enhance the status of the local legal profession in the international legal arena.
