CAMPUS VOICES 法 學 院 新 聞 HKU Law sparked off discussions on constitutional and administration law In November and December 2017, the Faculty of Law at The University of Hong Kong organized a series of academic activities on constitutional and administrative law. In his lectures "The Marauders Set to Undermine the Legal System" (November 7) and "Judicial Review: Does it Help or Hinder Good Administration?" (November 20), Professor Henry Litton discussed respectively how a lean, robust and effective town-planning system in Hong Kong has been undermined by the injection of European jurisprudence on human rights in recent years; and the fact that judicial review is discretionary. The Conference "China's National Security: Endangering Hong Kong's Rule of Law?" jointly organized by the CCPL of HKU and Birmingham Law School (December 4) assembled leading experts in exploring both the risks of introducing security legislation in Hong Kong and the region's sources of resilience and present a forward-looking perspective on the Rule of Law in Hong Kong, illustrating how it may succeed in resisting pressure to advance China's security interests through repressive law. On December 15, scholars and experts met and examined novel constitutional remedies in Asian countries including Bangladesh, Indonesia, India, South Korea in the "Constitutional Remedies in Asia Conference".
