Legal Forum – Hong Kong’s Civil Unrest and Upholding the Rule of Law

General Theme
The civil unrest in Hong Kong in the last few months has raised issues of the rule of law and citizens’ rights in Hong Kong. It also presents challenges for legal education for future generations of lawyers in Hong Kong. We believe it is important to provide relevant information and knowledge to concerned members of the public. Our goal is to foster neutral and impartial understanding of the law. We hope that, through education, citizens will enhance their understanding of the legal issues relating to the civil unrest and be in a better position to help Hong Kong recover.
