    Publication Date: August 2023
    Book (Soft cover)eBook

    Author: Stephen Hall

    Foundations of Contract Law in Hong Kong - Eighth Edition includes crucial updates, as follows:

    Among the many important changes that Hong Kong has experienced or endured over the past three decades is the gradual and continuing emergence of the distinctively local common law. 
    The common law of contract is no exception. It is now increasingly possible to speak of a Hong Kong law of contract that is not a mere facsimile of the English common law. The goal of this eighth edition is to advance the understanding and appreciation of Hong Kong’s law of contract in a way relevant to students, scholars, and practitioners alike.

    This new edition features, comprehensive legal updates, extensive original commentary, and analysis exploring the similarities and emerging differences among the jurisdictions with particular reference to the ongoing developments of the law in Hong Kong. It situates contract law in the broader context of a common law tradition that is essentially customary in character and reflects the reasonable expectations of a free people.

    This book also provides a carefully curated and edited selection of the most important or illustrative authorities in contract law drawn primarily from Hong Kong, England, and the wider common law world. The Hong Kong authorities included in this book develop or expound upon the common law of contract in a significant way, indicate some degree of doctrinal divergence from England, or illustrate the way in which a rule or principle works in a distinctively Hong Kong setting. The principal English authorities, which furnish the basic framework of the common law of contract, are extracted and explained in a way that is of relevance to Hong Kong. Recent developments in other common law jurisdictions that are likely to influence the future direction of Hong Kong law are also included.

  8. View details Civil Procedure in Hong Kong - Seventh Edition
    Publication Date: March 2023
    Book (Hardback)eBook

    Authors: Eric Cheung, Carter Chim, Gary Meggitt

    In 2021, in addition to general updates for each topic that enable readers to keep abreast of the latest developments in procedural laws in civil litigation, this title has substantially revised the part on legal professional privilege to discuss the recent judicial developments both in Hong Kong and other common law jurisdictions and the unsettled areas in this regard. It also raises an interesting and important discussion as to whether “legal advice privilege” and “litigation privilege” should be treated as two “distinct conceptual animals” instead of “two branches of the same tree”, as explained by the Canadian Supreme Court in Blank v Canada (Minister for Justice) [2006] 2 SCR 319. How that may affect the scope and application of the two heads of privilege in Hong Kong remains to be seen.

    This seventh edition also includes an entirely new chapter on judicial review. Not only does it provide a step-by-step guide for those who may need to handle judicial review proceedings, but it also explains the boundary of judicial review by reference to the administrative court’s jurisdiction, the concept of justiciability, and the administrative court’s discretion. It is a user-friendly chapter, especially for those who are not familiar with judicial review.
