Audrey Eu is the founder and leader of the Civic Party in Hong Kong. She obtained her LLB from the University of Hong Kong in 1975 and her LLM from LSE in 1977. She was admitted as a barrister in Hong Kong in 1978. In 1993, she was called to the Inner Bar and became a Queen’s Counsel (now known as Senior Counsel). In 1994, she became a non-official Justice of the Peace. Audrey Eu was the chairman of the Hong Kong Bar Association in 1997 and 1998, and a member of the Legislative Council 2000-2012. She has been on the Executive Council since 2006.

She says, "My memories of LSE merged with my memories of London and my hall life.  It was one of the best times of my life. While London has not changed that much since I was there in 1977, LSE has. I was back in LSE a few years ago for my daughter’s graduation and also for my honorary fellowship. LSE has grown so much it is hardly recognisable.  I used to sit in Professor Wedderburn’s company law lectures because he made company law sound so simple and straightforward."
