Greater China Legal History Seminar “The History of Consumer Law in Hong Kong: Just a Series of Failed Endeavours

The last CPD seminar “The History of Consumer Law in Hong Kong: Just a Series of Failed Endeavours” of the Greater China Legal History Seminar Series 2017-18 was delivered by Professor Geraint Howells on 13 April 2018 at the CUHK Graduate Law Centre. The seminar, which again drew a full house of participants to attend as with the other seminars in the series, introduced the legal history of Hong Kong’s consumer protection law over the last century and drew a fascinating comparative picture by benchmarking Hong Kong against other jurisdictions, including the UK and Singapore. It also illustrated special features of Hong Kong’s consumer policy, identified gaps in law and enforcement and provided proposals for the development of Hong Kong’s consumer protection law in the future.

The new seminar series for 2018-19 academic year will commence in September 2018. For details, please visit CUHK Law website (www.law.cuhk.edu.hk).
