Westlaw HK is the only source of the authorised case law in Hong Kong.  Sweet & Maxwell publishes both:

  • The Authorised Hong Kong Law Reports and Digest (HKLRD)
  • The Authorised Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal Reports (HKCFAR)

HKLRD is very simple to find on Westlaw HK and most users benefit from this already, but many users are not familiar with the fact that Westlaw HK also contains The Authorised Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal Reports.

To access these reports users can use the following simple steps:

  • Click ‘Directory’ at the top of the page
  • Click ‘International/Worldwide Materials’
  • Click ‘Asia and the Pacific Rim’
  • Click ‘Individual Country Materials’
  • Click ‘Hong Kong’

This then displays links to the materials related to Hong Kong.

All Databases > International/Worldwide Materials > Asia and the Pacific Rim > Individual Country Materials > Hong Kong

Directory Location: All Databases > International/Worldwide Materials > Asia and the Pacific Rim > Individual Country Materials > Hong Kong

To access HKCFAR you can then click on ‘Cases’ and then ‘Hong Kong Court of Final Appeals’ (Database identifier: HK-CFA) and this will open a search for only cases which have been reporterd in the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal.
