Given the current environment, as it relates to the Rule of Law, the 2020 edition of Archbold is perhaps the most important version of the publication to date. The General Editor, Professor Simon Young has overseen a comprehensive review to ensure relevant changes have been incorporated to maintain content currency at the time of going to press.
Of particular note, Gavin Shiu has completely rewritten the chapter on Identification Evidence and importantly, Professor Dykes has provided a section on National Emergency for the chapter on National Security. All legislative sections have been updated and all relevant HKCFA cases have been included.
The 2020 edition of Archbold Hong Kong allows you to stay confident in the face of an ever-changing legal environment. The Hon. Mr Justice Bokhary GBM, NPJ continues as the Editor-in-Chief with Professor Simon Young remaining as General Editor.
Cited extensively in court judgments, Archbold is the authoritative companion which adds weight and credibility to your arguments. It concentrates on what the law is, rather than what it ought to be, covering both substantive law as well as the practice and procedure of the court.
