Presenter's Profile:
Ms Cherry Hui

Ms Cherry HUI was admitted to practice as a Barrister of Hong Kong High Court in 1999.  In her private practice, she was involved in a wide variety of criminal cases.

Having got her law degree, Ms HUI took on a new challenge and worked as a part-time lecturer in Hong Kong for over ten years.  Her major responsible subjects were business law, criminal law and advocacy.  In those years, she developed her interest in being a lecturer to convey her knowledge to young people.

In 2008, Ms HUI took on an entirely new role, as she was appointed as a Deputy Special Magistrate.  The appointment gave her an opportunity to gain valuable experience.  In 2011, Ms HUI was appointed as a Deputy Magistrate for 39 months until she finished her appointment and resumed her practice in November, 2014.  She enjoyed being a Deputy Judicial Officer for that period and the experience gained will definitely be beneficial to her coming challenges.
