The Hong Kong International Family Justice Judicial Conference: Opening Address

It gives me immense pleasure to open the International Family Justice Judicial Conference in Hong Kong, the second such conference following the success of the International Family Justice Judicial Conference for Common Law and Commonwealth Jurisdictions held at Cumberland Lodge, in England three years ago. The theme of this conference is particularly apt: the Role of Common Law in the Future Development of International Family Justice. It is apt because implicit in the title is a rhetorical question along the following lines: can the Common Law, with its established approaches on both substantive and procedural law, cope with the modern challenges which exist in family law? Can the common law deliver 'family justice'?  

By Honourable Chief Justice Geoffrey Ma
