HONG KONG, [17 June 2024] — Star Anise Legal, an independent legal and compliance recruitment firm in Hong Kong, capped off a second successive year of collaboration with the charitable initiative Project WeCan. This partnership underscores Star Anise Legal’s commitment to social responsibility and its dedication to fostering the next generation of professionals.

Through this alliance, Star Anise Legal delivered the “Star Anise x Lee Heng Kwei English Buddy Programme & Job Interview Workshop,” an innovative program designed to enhance the English proficiency and job readiness of secondary school students. The program aims to bridge the gap between academic learning and practical career skills, empowering students to navigate the competitive job market with confidence. Since 2022, Star Anise has partnered with the Hong Kong Teachers’ Association Lee Heng Kwei Secondary School in Taipo, New Territories, a government aided band 3 secondary school.  

“We are thrilled to join forces with Project WeCan,” said Chris Tang, Co-Managing Director of Star Anise Legal. “Our involvement in the English Buddy Programme and Job Interview Workshop is more than just a corporate initiative; it’s a reflection of our core values and our belief in the transformative power of education.” In addition to Mr. Tang, Star Anise Consultant, Allan Campbell (pictured below) also delivered courses and workshops to students throughout the year.
