Since the publication of its celebrated first edition, Law of the Hong Kong Constitution is widely accepted as the leading text on the subject and an indispensable guide to the workings of the Basic Law. Written by a distinguished team of legal academics and specialist legal practitioners, it provides a detailed and unrivalled examination of every important aspect of Hong Kong’s constitutional arrangements, from the history of the territory’s constitutional development to the terms of Hong Kong’s autonomy, Hong Kong’s power to conduct its own external relations, the roles and powers of its Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches, the protection of fundamental rights and freedoms, as well as the journey to democratisation and the right to judicial remedies under a fast evolving and often complex body of case-law. The text has been cited with approval by the Judiciary, and provides insights on the development of different aspects of constitutional law in Hong Kong. Now fully updated, together with a discussion on the newly introduced National Security Law, the third edition retains the book’s original aim of providing a comprehensive and authoritative work on constitutional law in Hong Kong.
