    This study aims to assess the export potential of Kong Kong’s education services on a commercial basis, particularly with mainland China as the primary market and with higher education as the primary export of education services, while recognizing the competition from other education-exporting economies. The exports can be in the form of establishing schools or offering educational courses/programmes in markets outside Hong Kong (outbound mode) or enrolling non-resident students to study in Hong Kong’s educational institutions, schools and universities (inbound mode). The study also aims to recommend marketing priorities and strategies for Hong Kong as a whole and education services providers in particular in promoting Hong Kong’s exports of education services. Policy recommendations and institutional adjustments will also be made based on the findings of the study. The study is significant to the future development of Hong Kong in terms of the importance of education exports to the economy as a whole, the development opportunities of the education sector in Hong Kong, and the international importance of Hong Kong in the educational and cultural exchange.
    Specific research questions to be addressed in this study include the competitive advantages and disadvantages of Hong Kong’s exports of education services on a commercial basis; the student profiles of the potential market for Hong Kong’s exports of education services, particularly with mainland China as the primary market; the relevant, cost-effective marketing priorities and strategies for education services providers in Hong Kong; and the recommendations on policy and institutional arrangement of Hong Kong in promoting the exports. Methods of this study include literature review, questionnaire and interviews surveys in Beijing, Shanghai, Xi’an, Guangzhou, Donnggong, and Shenzhen cities in mainland China, interview surveys in Hong Kong, and case studies in Hong Kong. Findings from these 4 methods of survey will be analyzed holistically, applying the SWOT approach and a 3-dimension (costs and benefits, short- and long-term, society’s and education services provider’s point of view) frame of analysis.
    It is hoped that the results of this study can help education services providers identify the potential market segments and formulate their marketing priorities and strategies, while making relevant policy recommendations to the government and promotion recommendations to the Hong Kong Trade Development Council.

    Legal education is multifaceted academic and professional training and, since 2004, the undergraduate LLB programme has become a four-year undergraduate programme.
    As a result of the Report of the consultants on legal education and training in Hong Kong: a preliminary review in August 2002, a four-year curriculum was introduced and educational providers were invited to redesign their programmes in order to give students an expanded view of the world, enrich their general education, in addition to providing them with professional knowledge and skills.
    With its innovative new curriculum and its first intake of students in September 2006, the new School of Law at CUHK is concerned to develop appropriate Teaching Quality Assurance mechanisms, and associated staff and student development materials. The School also wishes to reflect upon divergent approaches to learning, to enrich the interpretation of the Student Engagement Questionnaire (SEQ) and other questionnaires within the University, and to provide feedback for curriculum design in future years.
    The Film of the law students is the first part of a four-year longitudinal study of the first intake of LLB students, the class of 2010. We shall film interviews with 10 law students in October 2006 and May 2007 and May 2008; film interviews with six law teachers in December 2006: and film an interview with Professor Paul Redmond, the lead Consultant to The legal education and training in Hong Kong: a preliminary review and a Visiting Professor in the School of Law 2006-2009.
    The School of Law regards the power of visual materials as a major tool in reflecting upon processes, development and outcomes (Fuery & Fuery, 2003). The video documentary A private universe produced by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics in 1987 is an interesting earlier model of the advantages of filming students for student learning and outcomes; this project forms a precedent for this approach and lends support to the current application.
    Curriculum design in law has, not surprisingly, sought an evidence base (Olgoff, J.R.P., Lyon, D. R., Dougles, K.S., & Rose V. G., 2000). This film will also contribute a unique perspective to current research on the culture and value systems of law students (Sheldon & Krieger, 2004; Allen & Baron, 2004) in general, and in Hong Kong in particular.
