The best academic articles provide an illuminating distillation of years – or more likely, centuries – of accumulated learning and the author’s own reflections on how the law ought or is likely to develop. This highly commendable volume of the Hong Kong Journal of Legal Studies forms part of that academic tradition.

Lawyers and law students should never be satisfied just with what the law is, but should keep questioning what the law ought to be. It is in this spirit that the efforts of the students in this Journal should be congratulated.
