2. It was mentioned in our final class that we had two weeks and a day to complete the assignment. Yet the deadline on the website and question paper is next Wednesday. Also, whenever the deadline is, next week or the week after, might it be possible to deposit the hardcopy by 6.30, otherwise the deadline for working students will effectively be the previous evening, since getting to HKU by 5pm will be impossible for those with jobs? (Or perhaps we could email you the assignment by 5pm sharp, and deposit the hardcopy later that evening, after finishing work?)
The deadline for the final exam is Wednesday, 2 May. This is the only date that has been given on the syllabus and on the exam itself.
To accommodate working students, the deadline for submission will be extended to 6.30pm.
1. I have a question regarding the final exam paper. In Part A, Question 2, the question is how the court in the US and/or China would handle the action if the article was published in those countries. So is it Wong, the subject in the article, still a police officer in HK? Or Wong would be a police officer in those countries in question 2?
You have some flexibility on the optional Question 2.A. You may treat Wong as either a Hong Kong police officer or as an officer in the jurisdiction in question as long as you clearly state your assumption at the start of your answer.
