Final Adjudication

  • The Court of Final Appeal (CFA), based in Hong Kong and established on 1 July 1997, replaced the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council of the United Kingdom as the highest appellate court for the HKSAR
  • Eminent jurists from other common law jurisdictions (e.g. the UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada) may be appointed to the CFA as non-permanent judges
  • The association of these esteemed judges with the CFA reflects Hong Kong's judicial independence, which helps maintaining a high degree of confidence in our legal system, and further allows Hong Kong to maintain its strong links with other common law jurisdictions
