Endorsed by the Hong Kong Judiciary, Archbold Hong Kong 2022 is the essential reference manual on criminal law, procedure, sentencing and practice in Hong Kong.

The Honourable Mr Justice Bokhary GBM, NPJ continues as Editor-in-Chief and Professor Simon Young of the University of Hong Kong serves as General Editor. Each chapter focuses on what the law is, rather than what it ought to be, and reflects the experience and expertise of the talented pool of 45 specialist criminal practitioners and academics.

As more cases under the National Security Law come before the courts, these developments will be covered in Chapters 2 (The Criminal Jurisdiction of the Courts), 5 (Sentences and Orders on Conviction), 15 (Police Powers, Confessions and Discretion to Exclude Evidence), 19 (Human Rights), 26 (National Security), 41 (Proceeds of Crime) and 42 (Surrender of Fugitive Offenders). In addition, recent developments in the areas of bail, sentencing and evidence will be covered.

Archbold Hong Kong 2022 is published two handy volumes - Volume 1 covers criminal procedure, evidence and sentencing and Volume 2 covers the general principles of criminal liability, human rights and specific offences.
