Louisa Mak Is Now a Licensed Lawyer in New York

TVB actress and 2015 Miss Hong Kong winner Louisa Mak (麥明詩) has always been known for her beauty and brains. The Cambridge law graduate’s decision to join the entertainment industry despite her high level of academic achievement was a shocker. However, she may not be giving up on being a lawyer just yet, as news broke out that she obtained the qualifications to practice law in the United States.

Reportedly, Louisa has been using her spare time in between filming dramas to self-study United States’ law courses. Although she decided to become an artist after graduating from Cambridge University, it turns out she did not let that stop her from pursuing the legal profession.

Instead of letting years of education go to waste, the 26-year-old continued to improve herself to pave another path for her future. Her mother also left her a message of encouragement on Facebook that read, “Continuously challenge yourself.”

Louisa allegedly succeeded in obtaining her license to practice law in the States and took a leave of absence from TVB to fly to New York for a few days to attend an interview at the local Albany court, say her oath, and receive a certificate. She documented her trip there by posting a couple of pictures of herself in New York City’s landmarks and Williams College in Massachusetts on Instagram. She captioned her latest picture with, “Work hard; use time and hard work to convince others.”

If she no longer wants to be an actress one day, she can still switch to being a lawyer any time. Perhaps the audience will be even more convinced with her portrayal of a new lawyer in her recently released drama OMG Your Honour <是咁的,法官閣下> now that she is a professional lawyer in reality.

    She will be far more successful in becoming a lawyer than being an actress.

    Smart to have a plan B, or a side job in this industry. Depending on the law she’s practicing, she could potentially be getting clients from her network
