The Law Society of Hong Kong's President Stephen Hung in his letter to members highlighted the Children's Issues Forum of which the Law Society has been a major sponsor and co-organiser.
Stephen Hung said
The Third Children's Issues Forum ("the Forum") was successfully held on 13 and 14 November and was well attended by fellow practitioners... The highlights of the Forum were the discussions on the long awaited law reform in dealing with children on divorce for Hong Kong and the keynote speech by the Hon Chief Justice Geoffrey Ma.
As noted by Stephen Hung, Mr Matthew Cheung the Secretary for Labour and Welfare noted that the Children's Bill will be released by the end of November, the Law Society "supports the introduction of the concept of 'parental responsibility'".
