The Hong Kong Credit and Security Manual (formerly known as Commercial Law in Hong Kong) has been re-structured as a Manual. This is to facilitate those drafting commercial documents to provide all background information in a systematic order. The draftsman will be able to list and review the information required for the particular document being drafted.
The structure of this book is in three parts. The first part contains background information relating to commercial law generally. The second part contains a commentary on the various forms of real as well as quasi-securities. Part three contains matters to assist in drafting commercial documents.
