    CUHK Research Committee Funding (Direct Grants)

    This research project will examine the nature, introduction and implementation of the new reforms to Hong Kong’s civil justice system. It will analyse the new reforms and recent developments in Hong Kong’s civil justice system from the perspective of access to justice. It will compare the reform process with developments in other common law jurisdictions which have, or are in the process of, reforming their systems. The project will address key questions including how the new reforms will work in practice in Hong Kong; the extent to which the new reforms will improve existing practices and procedures and the extent to which the new reforms will improve access to justice.
