The 2008 declaration of independence by the Hong Kong Court and anomalies in the Hong Kong Company Law
Lau, Alex (2009) The 2008 declaration of independence by the Hong Kong Court and anomalies in the Hong Kong Company Law. Company Law, 30(6), pp. 189-192.
Discusses two aspects of Hong Kong law: 1) the judgment of the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal in A Solicitor v The Law Society of Hong Kong on whether Hong Kong courts were bound, post-1997, by pre-1997 House of Lords or Privy Council decisions, by pre-1997 decisions of their own, or by post-1997 overseas decisions from any jurisdiction; and 2) the need for clarification in the Hong Kong Companies Ordinance of whether a company can have a single legal representative, the ultra vires rule and the duties of company directors
