The Litigation, Arbitration and Employment team of Hogan Lovells invites you to celebrate the publication of Civil Litigation in Hong Kong (4th Edition) in conjunction with Sweet & Maxwell.
To introduce the new edition of this popular text book, co-authors Allan Leung and Douglas Clark (Barrister-at-law), together with guest speaker Mr Anthony Rogers, ex-Vice President of the Court of Appeal, will share their experiences of the highs and lows of court life in the post-Civil Justice Reform era.
Civil Litigation in Hong Kong (4th Edition)
Since its first edition in 1993 under the title Hong Kong Legal Practice Manuals: Civil Litigation, this text book has proved to be an unparalleled practical guide to civil procedure in Hong Kong. Its commentary, checklists and sample documents have been a valuable source of knowledge for law students, trainee solicitors and practitioners who conduct civil litigation.
This fourth edition of Civil Litigation is the first update since the Civil Justice Reform ("CJR") came into effect in 2009. After nearly a decade of consultation, the CJR has implemented numerous changes to the dispute resolution process in Hong Kong and to the rules of civil procedure. This latest edition brings readers up to date with the changes under the CJR with the benefit of real experience from practitioners.
In addition to new commentary on the courts' powers on case management under the CJR, the fourth edition includes an updated chapter on the new Arbitration Ordinance, which came into effect in June 2011. Together with the updated section on mediation, one of the key features of the CJR, Civil Litigation aims to provide a well-rounded guide to dispute resolution in Hong Kong.
