AbstractThis article analyzes the first ten years of constitutional rights cases in Hong Kong’s Court of Final Appeal from 1999 to 2009. In its caseload of 45 rights cases, the Court heard a diverse range of rights issues and upheld the majority of the rights arguments. It decided cases efficiently, made strategic use of its procedure to allow an overseas common law judge to sit on cases, and generally spoken in one voice. The Court’s jurisprudence and track record provides a foundation for the continued protection of human rights in Hong Kong.
