Dr. LAW Chi Kwong

Having taught at the University of Hong Kong since 1981, CK is the most senior ex-department head still teaching at the Department. Been a member of the Legislative Council (1995-97, 1998-2004), served as research consultant to many government departments and bureaux, and serving in many advisory bodies, CK is very familiar with the policy formulation process of the HKSAR Government and many of his policy research and advocacy work have formed part of existing government policies. Being the Chair of the Community Care Fund Task Force, CK is sometimes mistaken by members of the public to be “Mr. Kwan”. Apart from sitting in the board of directors of several major NGOs in Hong Kong, CK along with others has founded the Senior Citizen Home Safety Association which is the major service provider for emergency call service for elderlies in Hong Kong and is also quoted as one of the few very successful social enterprises in Hong Kong.
