The Alumni Affairs Office of the Public Affairs Unit has recently raised money for the Alumni Scholarship and Bursary Fund. There were totally 172 alumni and students supporting the events and together they donated $102,500. As a token of appreciation, the Alumni Affairs Office invited them to attend three talks, at which volunteer speakers shared their valuable experiences and highlighted some of the legal issues commonly encountered at work or in everyday life. Each talk was attended by about 150 people.

The first talk on ‘Employees’ Compensation Ordinance, Negligence Claims and Privacy Law’ was hosted by Mr Herman Tang, a solicitor, on 18 May. Various topics were covered, including the definition of self-employed and employed, the liability of employer in case of death of staff on a business trip, the required elements of negligence claims and the privacy concerns surrounding positive mortgage data sharing. The talk provided an opportunity for participants to learn more about their legal rights.

All donations received will go to the Alumni Scholarship and Bursary Fund to provide assistance to outstanding or financially-needed students. The Fund will be matched 100% by the Mr. Vincent Woo Matching Donation Fund.
