‘The scholarship displayed in this work is of the highest quality. It is an authoritative text on administrative law in Hong Kong and makes a most important contribution to the learning in this field. It will provide invaluable guidance and assistance to judges, lawyers, public administrators, academics and students. This work will be a leading text and deserves to be widely read and used both in and outside Hong Kong.'

Andrew Kwok Nang Li - First Chief Justice of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China (1997–2010)

‘This closely focussed and precise account of administrative law in Hong Kong will prove very useful to the student approaching the examinations or practitioner wrestling with a difficult judicial review. Well and clearly written this book will surely make its mark. Dr Thomson deserves the gratitude of the profession.'

Christopher F. Forsyth - Sir David Williams Professor of Public Law, University of Cambridge

‘A very welcome addition to the few books that deal with Administrative Law in Hong Kong. The author has produced a very readable guide to an area of law that is crucial to the maintenance of the Rule of Law in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. Especially welcome is the author's attempt to locate the significance of Administrative Law within the unique constitutional structure of the HKSAR, including descriptions of the major public bodies that make decisions that resonate in public law.'

Philip Dykes - Bernacchi Chambers, Hong Kong

'In his book Administrative Law in Hong Kong … Dr Stephen Thomson masterfully navigates the reader through these difficult waters with a writing style that displays passion and clarity in equal measure.'
