Civil Liberties

“Respect for the law and for the freedom of the individual citizen depend to a large extent on the maintenance of high standards by all who practise in the Courts” – para 1 of the Code of Conduct of the Bar of the Hong Kong SAR. Our legal system has created many different forms of offences which directly affect our civil liberties. The application of the traditional rules of evidence on crimes committed through social media also has significant implications on our right to privacy. Our Chambers maintain a strong emphasis on keeping ourselves up-to-date in the latest developments in the information technology and the telecommunications industry in order to safeguard our civil liberties in the digital era.
