Legal System

The legal system of Hong Kong remains based upon that of England and Wales. Legislation is by locally enacted Ordinance. The local Court of Final Appeal has replaced the role previously exercised by the Privy Council in Britain. The fundamental principles upon which the law operates are to remain because they have been incorporated into the Basic Law of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
