Hong Kong Civil Court Practice is the original practitioner’s reference work on civil procedure in Hong Kong, having first been published in 1994. This title contains the full text of the Rules of the High Court (Cap 4A), along with extensive commentary .The commentary in the Desk Edition 2022 continues to focus on Hong Kong, referring primarily to decisions of the local courts as well as practice directions and other guidance from the Hong Kong judiciary. As provided in Article 84 of the Basic Law of the Hong Kong SAR, precedents of other common law jurisdictions may be referred to by the local courts. Where such precedents are relevant, we continue to refer to them, particularly those from the UK. The UK is a natural source as the Hong Kong rules have their genesis in and are still largely based on the Supreme Court Rules which applied in England and Wales until the changes introduced in the UK by the Woolf reforms in 1999.
Some guidance on the changes to the rules implemented by the Civil Justice Reforms, particularly on points which may not yet have been fully considered by the local courts, can be found in our sister publication in the UK, the Civil Court Practice. Relevant passages from the Civil Court Practice are reproduced in this work. On occasion commentary goes further afield, referring to relevant authorities from Australia, Canada, Malaysia, New Zealand and Singapore which all have similar civil procedure rules deriving from the UK experience.
