Registration


Registration is closed

The HKCCA Executive Committee invites you to participate in a conversation about the legal issues surrounding the NPCSC interpretation.We are living on the unknown interface of a common law system and a civil law system that has not been seen before.  The constitutional issues that Hong Kong is facing are going to continue for some time as the ramifications of the NPCSC interpretation are uncertain and long lasting. Both the Bar Council and the Law Society have made statements. On this issue, over 2000 lawyers turned out for the silent march. HKCCA believes that this is a topical issue that our members would be highly interested in.

Confirmed Panelists:

Margaret Ng, barrister and former Hong Kong legislative councillor for the legal functional constituency

Ronny Tong, senior counsel, former Hong Kong legislative councillor and convenor of Path for Democracy

Lo Pui Yin, barrister of Gilt Chambers and teacher of constitution law at UHK

Amirali Nasri, Vice President of the Law Society of Hong Kong.

Priscilla Leung, barrister and Hong Kong Legislative Councillor, representing the Kowloon West constituency.

Moderator:

Jonathan Ross, Director of the HKCCA, General Counsel of Starry Group.


Breakfast will be provided. 2 CPD points have been accredited.
