Community Legal Information Centre
A general description on the legal system in Hong Kong, including the sources of Law, court structure, introducing the Judiciary and the Department of Justice.
The cost of litigation is normally high. The Hong Kong judicial system has provided some other means of dispute resolution in the form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) that seek to minimize the costs of dispute resolution.
What is a civil case? How to start a civil action? How to defend yourself against a civil action?
Various free or subsidized legal assistance are available in Hong Kong to ensure persons who have reasonable grounds for taking or defending a legal action are not prevented from doing because of financial difficulties.
Judicial review is the legal process by which the courts review and invalidate actions taken by the executive and legislative branches of government, if those actions are unconstitutional or unlawful.
