Dr. Stephen Thomson

Dr. Stephen Thomson is an Associate Professor and Director of the PhD and JSD Programmes at the School of Law, City University of Hong Kong.  He is a Legal Adviser to the Ombudsman of Hong Kong, a member of the Constitutional Affairs and Human Rights Committee of the Law Society of Hong Kong, and an examiner on the Overseas Lawyers Qualification Examination.  Dr. Thomson is the author of the leading text on ‘Administrative Law in Hong Kong’, and also the author of the only book to have been written on equitable jurisdiction in Scotland, which has been cited with approval in the supreme civil court in Scotland.  He holds a Ph.D. in judicial review from the University of Edinburgh (UK), and has practical legal and commercial experience, having worked at a UK law firm and acted on a consultancy and advisory basis to law firms, private clients and public bodies in Hong Kong and the UK.

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!

Contents:

  • 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
