In 2017, Timothy Loh LLP established a scholarship award, named the Timothy Loh Prize, for Juris Doctor students at the Chinese University of Hong Kong, which grants a HK$15,000 bursary to one recipient per academic year.
In line with the Global Scholars Program, which offers a paid 4-week internship in Hong Kong to promising law students from any common law jurisdiction, the Timothy Loh Prize is the second initiative of the firm’s dedication to supporting young talent in pursuing legal careers specializing in financial services.
