Text, Cases and Commentary on the Hong Kong Legal System (Paperback)

Michael John Fisher

Text, Cases and Commentary on the Hong Kong Legal System covers all the topics encompassed in the syllabus for “Hong Kong Legal System”, as required for the Hong Kong Conversion Examination for PCLL Admission. Starting with an overview of Hong Kong legal history, the book provides a detailed description of the Hong Kong legal system and the basic primary source materials that underpin the subject. Regular commentary is provided on these primary materials. The book ends with an introduction to legal research in Hong Kong intended primarily for those who have studied law outside Hong Kong.

This book is ideal for those intending to take the pre-PCLL conversion examination, especially those preparing by self-study. It should also be of interest to general academic and legal readers who wish to have a deeper understanding of how law operates in Hong Kong. The development of Hong Kong’s unique political “experiment”, “One Country, Two Systems”, should also be of concern to all those with an interest in comparative legal studies and in the interface between law and politics.
