The civil justice system in Hong Kong has been accused of being too slow, too expensive, and too complex. Reform of the Civil Process in Hong Kong looks at the problems that exist in the system and the context for reform. The means and methods used in other jurisdictions are also considered in some depth in an attempt to improve the performance of the civil justice system in Hong Kong. Written by a distinguished panel of judges, practitioners and academics from Hong Kong, England and Singapore, this invaluable book also addresses in some detail the Woolf Reforms and their relevance and impact on Hong Kong.
