Advocacy and the Litigation Process in Hong Kong provides an introduction to the basic rules, conventions, and techniques that every advocate must know and apply when practicing in both the civil and criminal courts of Hong Kong. It takes the reader through the complex litigation process from first interview with the client, through the preparation of the case for trial, interlocutory applications, the trial itself, and finally appeals. It also highlights the skills required to be successful and emphasises the ethical duties of advocates. The content extends beyond relevant topics for front-line advocates, but encompasses much guidance on how to run a successful litigation practice.
The fourth edition incorporates many new developments in the rules and techniques of practice and introduces many new cases and practice directions relevant to practice, in particular the new Bar Code of Conduct and the Civil Justice Reform.
