Yang-Wahn Hew and Kevin Lau recently updated The Annotated Ordinances of Hong Kong: Immigration Ordinance (Cap.115) and the Butterworths Hong Kong Immigration Law Handbook (3rd Edition). These updates take into account the latest developments in Hong Kong immigration law, including (1) the impact of the right to family and humanitarian considerations on the dependent visa policy promulgated by the Director of Immigration, (2) challenges to immigration law and policy based on discrimination for sexual orientation, and (3) the significant jurisprudence built up concerning the Unified Screening Mechanism to process non-refoulement claims since 2014.
Previously, Yang-Wahn Hew, Adrian Lai, Kevin Lau and Sharon Yuen contributed updates to the Butterworths Hong Kong Contract Law Handbook (4th Ed, 2019), and Yang-Wahn Hew and Sharon Yuen further revised The Annotated Ordinances of Hong Kong: Electronic Transactions Ordinance (Cap. 553).
