Expansion, and some law?[edit]

This page looks pretty good, and it's very interesting to see how all the institutions work. Can someone start a few passages about how the substantive law - particularly private law - works? Until 1997, I suppose the Privy Council would have decided cases in the final instance - so is contract, tort, property, trusts and unjust enrichment all like that in England? Or is there a code? What about criminal law? How has that changed since Hong Kong was reabsorbed into the PRC? What about trade union freedom and labour law - and how (if at all) has it, or freedom of association and assembly, changed recently? What is the relevant companies act? It would be fantastic to see some more things like this. Wikidea 16:38, 1 January 2010 (UTC)

I am thinking whether this page should be on the substantive law alone. When you use the term "Law of Hong Kong", that normally refers to the substantive law in Hong Kong rather than the legal system. Should we create a new page called "Legal system of Hong Kong" and transfer the information of the institutions onto that page? Craddocktm (talk) 05:13, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
