Course Outline:

A very useful and easy-to-understand seminar on judicial review in Hong Kong, from the author of the new, leading text on administrative law in Hong Kong (Stephen Thomson, 'Administrative Law in Hong Kong', Cambridge University Press, 2018).  Whether you work in the public or private sector, it is essential to have a good grasp of this important area of law, which is increasingly prominent in Hong Kong.  The seminar covers the main aspects of procedure that are key to understanding how judicial review works in practice, including the leave stage and standing requirements.  It also gives an overview of the main grounds of judicial review, and a summary of remedies.  By the end of the seminar, participants should be more familiar with the procedural and substantive aspects of judicial review in Hong Kong.  Don't get caught out - (re)familiarise yourself with this essential area of law!

Key points covered:

  • Judicial review procedure
  • The leave stage
  • The public/private divide
  • Delay and standing requirements
  • Ouster clauses
  • Main grounds of judicial review: improper purposes, unlawful delegation, fettering of discretion, breach of legitimate expectations and more
  • Remedies
