Product description

In common with many jurisdictions around the world, Hong Kong has seen growth in the number of family law petitions filed with the courts. Family law is increasingly becoming an area where clients are best served by specialist practitioners and judges.  Cultural imperatives have given rise to a marked deviation between Hong Kong and English case authorities, resulting in family law in Hong Kong no longer being a mirror of the law in England. Although overseas cases are still frequently relied upon in submissions, it is apparent that reliance upon Hong Kong cases is becoming imperative.

 

Few Hong Kong family law judgments make it to the general law reports. The result has been that practitioners are denied the ability to arm themselves with the relevant authorities. This lack of resources has not only impeded practitioners but had a direct impact on service levels to litigants. The Hong Kong Family Law Reports address this gap. This comprehensive collection of judgments offers evidence of the intellectual arguments surrounding judicial discretion in the full spectrum of family law cases. The Hong Kong Family Law Reports is intended to support the consistency and continuing development of this important area of the law and is an essential reference for practitioners and academics alike.
