              While many books detail Hong Kong's specific legal practices, no recent publication broadly addresses the city's core legal concerns and general issues. Supplying a modern-day guide to Hong Kong's general principles of law, this volume makes an ideal companion for beginning schol...ars and non-legal professionals. First published in 2006 and reprinted three times, the volume now reflects the numerous changes made to Hong Kong law since its initial publication.Redesigned as a practical guide to common legal principles, including contract, tort, employment, and property law, this second edition better helps readers understand and anticipate legal issues arising in today's commercial and personal environments. New material includes coverage of recent court decisions and revisions to Hong Kong ordinances, and the text overall adopts a more user-friendly organization.

              This revised and expanded second edition of Contract Law in Hong Kong is the most comprehensive contemporary textbook on Hong Kong contract law written primarily for law students. The 16 chapters of the book cover all basic contract concepts in a reader-friendly style and make am...ple use of case illustrations. The book deals with all the core areas of Contract Law. The first two chapters introduce the major themes and explain the multiple sources of law in Hong Kong. The subsequent thirteen chapters cover the formation of a valid contract, its contents, vitiating elements, the consequences of illegality, the termination of contracts and remedies for breach of contract. The book concludes with an explanation of the doctrine of privity and proposals for reform of the operation of privity in Hong Kong. Particular attention is given to what makes Hong Kong law different from other common law jurisdictions, and to the continuing significance of English case law in Hong Kong and the theoretical and practical reasons for this. The book is intended primarily as a readable but comprehensive and authoritative text for Hong Kong law students. Practising lawyers and professionals who need to acquire knowledge on the topic, however, will also find this book useful and accessible.

              With the commencement of economic reform in China and the subsequent dramatic growth in its economy and of private enterprise both Chinese and foreign, the company law of China has become of great importance. In this pioneering and comprehensive study, Gu Minkang provides a clear... picture of the major topics of China's company law. Based on his wide knowledge of Chinese, American and European Union law, he adopts a comparative approach to enhance his analysis and to strengthen his readers' understanding. Recognizing that the Company Law is still in the process of formation, Gu Minkang in this volume provides an historical introduction, discusses the evolution of the current law, the factors that continue to shape its development and the directions in which it is evolving. He then goes on to discuss the nature of companies, the constitution of companies, the establishment of limited liability companies, the establishment of joint stock companies, directors and boards of directors, boards of supervision, and the role of the workers, the Communist Party and of company secretaries in corporate governance. Moving over to financial topics, he reviews corporate finance, mergers and acquisitions, and bankruptcy proceedings. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
