主要從《中英聯合聲明》談判、《香港基本法》制定歷史出發,介紹「一國兩制」下《香港基本法》對原有普通法制度的保留。 從《香港基本法》居民基本權利保障的視角,闡述香港特區法院在回歸後對普通法制度的發展。 進而,在國家「十四五」規劃和粵港澳大灣區建設背景下,探討如何持續利用香港普通法優勢,融入國家發展大局。


This lecture presents the preservation of the original common law system by the Hong Kong Basic Law under “One Country, Two Systems,” primarily by exploring the historical context of the Sino-British Joint Declaration negotiations and the formulation of the Hong Kong Basic Law. From the perspective of safeguarding residents’ basic rights under the Hong Kong Basic Law, this lecture will elucidate the evolution of the common law system as upheld by the courts of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (SAR) following the handover. Moreover, within the context of China’s “14th Five-Year Plan” and the burgeoning construction of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, this lecture will investigate ways to maintain the benefits of Hong Kong’s common law system while integrating it into China’s broader progress.
