Butterworths Hong Kong Evidence Law Handbook is a detailed work of reference containing up-to-date materials on the Evidence Ordinance (Cap 8), the legislation governing the law of evidence in Hong Kong. The Handbook reproduces the text of the Ordinance as currently in force, together with details on amendments and repeals. The commentary in this Ordinance states the law as at 1 January 2016. This Handbook also provides section-by-section annotations to the Ordinance. These annotations encompass significant judicial decisions and rules of court, as well as notes ranging from definitions of words and phrases to discussions on practical aspects and contentious issues relating to particular sections in a succinct format. This series has been cited, with authority, in over one hundred court cases in the Hong Kong Court of First Instance, Court of Appeal, and Court of Final Appeal. This Handbook will be an invaluable source of reference for lawyers, prosecutors, judicial officers, police officers, academics, students and all others who are engaged or interested in the law of evidence in Hong Kong.
