Non-Permanent Judges of the Court of Final Appeal, the Right Honourable the Lord Neuberger of Abbotsbury (former President of the Supreme Court of England and Wales who presided the Brexit case)
At the moment I detect no undermining of judicial independence [in Hong Kong]. If I felt that the independence of the judiciary in Hong Kong was being undermined then I would either have to speak out or I would have to resign as a judge.
Ronald Sum, Head of Dispute Resolution Asia, Addleshaw Goddard (Hong Kong) LLP
I support the Department of Justice to keep pace with global changes by capitialising on modern technology with a view to consolidating our role as an international legal hub for legal, deal-making and dispute resolution services.

"Vision 2030 for Rule of Law", will teach young people about the rule of law and also promote their awareness of law-abiding issues, through collaboration with the various stakeholders. I feel sure the programme will enhance the community's proper understanding of the rule of law, and of how it operates in practice.
Justin D’Agostino, CEO, Herbert Smith Freehills
The new Legal Cloud for Hong Kong is a worthy investment, both in the new digital law technology shaping the future of our profession, and in Hong Kong’s long-term strength as a dispute resolution hub.
The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, PC, Non-Permanent Judge of the Court of Final Appeal, retired Chief Justice of Canada
The court (in Hong Kong) is very independent, the judges are very high caliber. So they don’t need somebody, in my opinion, to tell them what to do. And that’s not the role.
Dr Thomas So, JP, Partner, Mayer Brown, HKSAR
Hong Kong, as an international legal hub, will further enhance the capability of its legal profession by harnessing modern technology in the provision of legal and dispute resolution services.
The Right Honourable Beverley McLachlin, PC, Non-Permanent Judge of the Court of Final Appeal, retired Chief Justice of Canada
The presence of judges from England, Australia or Canada on the court, signing on to the decisions, enhances public confidence in their (Hong Kong’s) justice system and in those decisions.
