The Fifteenth Anniversary of the Basic Law approaches. The intervening period has allowed events to develop and mature, and there is now a very large body of case law. Law of the Hong Kong Constitution is a much needed publication on Hong Kong’s constitution.

It is the first major work on the topic and is the only comprehensive publication on the topic. Written by a distinguished team of experts, the publication fully examines all aspects of the Basic Law, from the recent Court of Final Appeal decision in Democratic Republic of Congo v. FG Hemisphere Associates LLC, to rights protection, to the issue of electoral reform. The authors are particularly adept at identifying areas of potential difficulty.

This is the must-have publication for anyone interested in Hong Kong’s constitution and the novel concept of “one country, two systems”.
