The table below contains details of upcoming final appeals for which a Notice of Hearing has been issued. The Court's diary is subject to change. You are advised to check this page regularly for the latest information.
A Notice of Hearing is a written notice that informs parties of the fixed date of hearing.
Where the hearing is for the purpose of handing down judgment, the judges will not normally attend the hearing and the parties do not need to attend by counsel. The parties may instead send representatives of their solicitors to collect hard copies of the judgment that will be handed down. In accordance with Rule 45(3) of the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal Rules, if it is necessary for the court to convene for the purposes of handing down the judgment, three of the judges who heard and determined the appeal will sit as the judges for the handing down and their names will be indicated by a "+" symbol in the table below. In many cases, however, it is not necessary for the court to convene for the purposes of handing down the judgment and the handing down will be conducted without the judges being present in court.
