[Lexis Flip™] A Guide to Civil Procedure in Hong Kong - Sixth Edition (Student)
Authors: Michael Wilkinson, Eric Cheung, Gary Meggitt
It is quite startling just how many judgments involving points of civil procedure are coming from the courts and just to keep abreast of developments is almost a full-time occupation for practitioners and judges alike. And for students to master the rules is a considerable challenge. We hope that this text will go some way to alleviating their respective tasks."

This text provides students 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 been in effect since 2009 and there are many judicial decisions reflecting judicial approaches and attitudes to the implementation of the rules. The authors have chronicled these developments by reference to the considerable amount of case law on the rules and practice directions.
