Welcome to HKLII

With a view to promoting and supporting the rule of law in Hong Kong, HKLII is a free, independent, non-profit Internet facility providing the public with legal information relating to Hong Kong.

HKLII Needs Your Support
Since January 2002, HKLII has been providing the general public with online access to HK’s legal information free of charge.

Unfortunately, despite our utmost effort in minimising the operation costs, the fund for HKLII is about to run out. This means that unless there are new funds coming to HKLII, the day will come when it can no longer be in operation.

If you have been using HKLII and wish it to continue, you can help by donating to HKLII via the link below. Any amount donated will contribute to HKLII’s continuance. Your donations will be processed by The University of Hong Kong and used solely in connection with the operation of HKLII.

Thank you for using HKLII. And thank you in advance for your support.
