Founded in 1907, The Law Society of Hong Kong welcomed its 115th anniversary in 2022. In celebration of this momentous milestone, the Law Society launched its 115th anniversary book “Changing Times, Steadfast Purpose: The Law Society at 115” (the “115A Book”).
As part of its celebration of the 100th anniversary back in 2007, the Law Society published an anniversary book recording the centenary history of the professional body (the “Centenary Book”). The 115A Book is produced, with the great effort of the Working Party on Historical Archive (“WPHA”), to supplement the Centenary Book with a number of new chapters covering the accomplishment and historical moments of the Law Society and the legal profession over the past 15 years, from 2007 up to 2022.
The 115A Book was soft launched on 26 July 2023 in the presence of many Past Presidents, Law Society officials, WPHA members, and those who have made significant contributions to the 115A Book. In his speech, President C.M. Chan said that the 115A Book is a record of the Past President’s remarkable accomplishment under their visionary leadership and dedication to the legal profession. He also thanked the WPHA chaired by Mr Fred Kan, and the editorial team led by Dr Simon Alderson.
The 115A Book tells Hong Kong’s unique legal story, and is now available in e-book format. Please click the button below to start your journey through the history of the Law Society.
