The St Hugh’s Law Lecture

 

We were delighted to welcome Mr Rimsky Yuen, SC JP, Secretary for Justice, Hong Kong Government, to St Hugh’s. He spoke at the St Hugh’s Law Lecture 2017, entitled ‘The Development of Common Law in Hong Kong – Past, Present and Future’.

Mr Yuen commented: ‘With the constitutional guarantee enshrined in the Basic Law and the high quality of our independent Judiciary, common law, together with its underlying spirit of the rule of law, will continue to grow from strength to strength in the years to come.’The lecture was well attended, with a lively discussion afterwards about Hong Kong Law, and a photocall opportunity for a number of students with Mr Yuen.

       

The lecture was followed by a drinks reception, and then the Law Dinner in the Wordsworth Room, attended by the College Principal, the Rt Hon Lord Patten, Chancellor of the University, distinguished friend of the College Mr Edwin Mok, and a number of senior and Honorary Fellows of the College.
