UK Target Law (LLB) for HK IB

Hey guys I'm a student about to do law at the LSE this September (am ethnically Chinese - native proficiency although maybe a tiny bit off for full professional usage i.e., terminology etc etc)I am desperately looking for a bit of guidance on how to break into HK investment banking. I've heard econ/finance is preferred locally but some people also say that because LSE is a target school for HK BB's, I might get away with it granted my story is acceptable. I'm open to applying for an MSc in Finance if it helps my cause.

Currently I'm really interested in S&T and hope to make it in that department.I have little to no idea on deadlines and am not sure what internships/applications I should be looking at if I want to break in!

Please, any guidance would be MUCH appreciated!!
