  HK to hold its largest Mainland legal forum  
  Hong Kong will hold its largest ever legal services forum in China on July 6 to coincide with the Shanghai World Expo and promote Hong Kong’s status as a leading international centre of legal expertise.

Up to 400 people from Shanghai and surrounding cities, are expected to attend the Hong Kong Legal Services Forum organised by the Department of Justice.

A high-level Hong Kong contingent led by Secretary for Justice Wong Yan Lung will also take part in the event under the theme "Hong Kong Legal Services - Global Vision".

Forum speakers will include leading Hong Kong solicitors, barristers and arbitrators who will share their experiences across a range of issues, including international trade, mergers and acquisitions, corporate governance, commercial dispute resolution, procedural and evidentiary issues in arbitration and the enforcement of arbitral awards.

Mr Wong said: "As Shanghai plays host to Expo 2010, this will be an opportune time for Hong Kong to demonstrate our strength as a regional centre of legal services and dispute resolution.

"I believe Hong Kong is in a position to share our experience with the corporate and legal sectors of the Mainland."
