  • “The author’s stated modest aim of creating a practitioner’s text has been truly exceeded, as this book will become indispensable not only for Judges, academics, and practitioners in Hong Kong, but will also garner a deserved extra-territorial readership.”

    - Dr Gerard McCoy QC SC, Gilt Chambers

     

    “I unhesitatingly commend it to all practitioners.”

    - Hectar Pun, SC, Denis Chang’s Chambers

     

    “For the first time, this book diligently brings together the practical and legal challenges specific to Hong Kong which are directly relevant to those practitioners who seek to defend these rights. Moreover those engaged in the difficult task of determining claims will find this guidance useful and help them arrive at fair, just and reasonable decisions.”

    - Piya Muqit, Justice Centre Hong Kong
