Since its first edition, Civil Litigation in Hong Kong has proved to be an unparalleled, practical guide to civil procedure in Hong Kong. Its commentary, checklists and sample documents have been a valuable source of knowledge for law students, trainee solicitors and experienced lawyers.
The fourth edition of Civil Litigation is the first update since the Civil Justice Reforms ("CJR") came into effect in 2009. After nearly a decade of consultation, the CJR has implemented numerous changes to the dispute resolution process in Hong Kong and to the rules of civil procedure. This fourth edition brings readers up to date with the changes under the CJR with the benefit of real experience from practitioners.
In addition to a detailed commentary on the courts' new powers on case management under the CJR, the fourth edition includes an updated chapter on the new Arbitration Ordinance, which came into effect in June 2011. Together with the updated section on mediation, one of the key features of the CJR, Civil Litigation aims to provide a well-rounded guide to dispute resolution in Hong Kong.
