Note: Due to the expansion of the legislation and respective legal commentary, the 21st Edition of this title will be bound in two volumes. We hope that this will improve usability, while offering the most comprehensive and relevant content on this area of law.Ho & Hall's Hong Kong Contract Law - Fifth Edition, written by Stephen Hall, is a comprehensive work which expertly identifies the unique local characteristics of Hong Kong contact law. The text balances theoretical and policy discussion with practical considerations, including clear illustrative examples of the law at work. It is the author's hope that this fifth edition of Betty Ho’s principal work on contract law can build on her legacy and make a contribution to the further emergence of a Hong Kong common law of contract.
