Recently, Angela’s experience and legal research capabilities led to her appointment by LexisNexis as the sole / co-contributor for three pieces of legislations in the Annotated Ordinances of Hong Kong:

The Emergency Regulations Ordinance (Cap. 241) – as sole annotator of the first edition (2020), which includes the comprehensive legislative history of the Ordinance and a comparison with the UK’s Emergency Regulation Act 1921. This annotation covers all the detailed discussions and interpretations of the respective sections of the Ordinance, including the rulings of the first instance and appellate courts in Kwok Wing Hang & Ors v Chief Executive in Council & Ors [2019] 6 HKC 452, [2020] 1 HKLRD 1, [2019] HKCFI 2820 and Kwok Wing hang & Ors v Chief Executive in Council & Ors [2020] 3 HKC 83, [2020] HKCA 192.

The Hotel and Guesthouse Accommodation Ordinance (Cap. 349) – as co-annotator of the first edition (2020). This voluminous section-by-section annotation provides precise information on the interpretation, treatment and application of the legislation.

The Occupiers Liability Ordinance (Cap. 314) – as co-annotator of the 2020 reissue. This edition comprises all the updated cases, definitions and analyses of all sections. The last annotation was published in 2009.

Modelled on the authoritative Halsbury’s Statutes of England and Wales, the Annotated Ordinances of Hong Kong provides section-by-section annotations which offer precise information on frequently referenced Hong Kong Ordinances, and is updated regularly to reflect the latest changes in the law.
