Criminal Litigation in Hong Kong a popular text that is now in its third edition – is all about knowhow and pragmatism. It covers criminal litigation from a uniquely practical perspective: it starts with how to receive instructions from clients and takes you through the entire litigation process.

A publication that is particularly useful for junior practitioners, each chapter contains sample documents to use, tricks of the trade, and detailed checklists. Importantly, as the book is guided by the principle that the first rule of practice is to protect yourself at all times, it focuses on pitfalls to avoid.

For the third edition, topics such as preparation for trial and video recorded interviews have been substantially expanded; and there are new chapters on The Duty Lawyer and Legal Aid, the Solicitor as Prosecutor, and Conflicts of Interest. With the criminal courts getting busier and busier and insisting on higher professional standards, this is an essential work for anyone engaged in criminal practice.
