Product description

A Guide to Civil Procedure in Hong Kong – Sixth Edition provides practitioners with a clear and up to date exposition of the rules and judicial decisions governing the conduct of civil litigation in Hong Kong.

The Civil Justice Reform has now been effective for more than 8 years and there are many judicial decisions reflecting judicial approaches and attitudes to the implementation of the new rules.  The authors have chronicled these developments by reference to the considerable amount of case law on the new rules and practice directions.
