Product description

Hong Kong Statutory Interpretation Handbook (Second Edition) is a detailed work of reference containing, in the first part, a general examination of the law of statutory interpretation in Hong Kong. Topics discussed in detail include:
  • Statutes in the Hong Kong legal system
  • Legislative intent
  • Approaches to interpretation
  • Presumptions
  • Linguistic canons
  • Internal aids
  • Extrinsic materials
  • Basic Law and Bill of Rights


  • The second part provides up-to-date annotations to the Interpretation and General Clauses Ordinance (Cap 1), which is reproduced as currently in force, noting all amendments and repeals. Annotations encompass significant judicial decisions and rules of court, provide definitions of words and phrases and discuss practical aspects and contentious issues relating to each section. The text is clear, succinct, fully cross-referenced and supplemented by tables of cases, legislation, other sources and glossary of English-Chinese Terms. Both parts are indexed for ease of use.

    This Handbook is a useful reference for legal practitioners, law students and all others who want to know better how legislation might affect their individual rights and freedoms, private life and commercial activities in Hong Kong.
