Course Outline:

This is one of five seminars given by the speaker relating to notarial practice.

In their daily practice, legal practitioners often handle Affidavits and Declarations in court cases, conveyancing transactions, and other legal matters.

Affidavits and Declarations that are sworn or taken in Hong Kong, but are used in foreign countries (and vice versa) often involve cross border issues that had been litigated in court.

It is therefore important for practitioners and their staff to be familiar with the relevant requirements.

In this seminar, the speaker will explain the relevant legislations, and illustrate with court decided cases.
