This exploratory study examines the effectiveness of the hospitality law subject to students, the legal issues students have encountered at workplaces, and the practicality of the subject contents. Survey results show that 63% of respondents agreed that the law subject is the most important subject. Moreover, 68% believed that the law subject should be compulsory. Students considered “employment law” as the most important legal issue and expressed the need to study the topic further. Considering the scarcity of institutions offering hospitality law subjects in Hong Kong, this paper should provide some new perspectives in hospitality and tourism program planning.
