University Notes of Varying Calibre
This page contains links to digital files that Cliff Lui and other learned friends have created for Hong Kong university subjects including business, substantive law (LLB) notes, and procedural law (PCLL) notes. More recently, our authors have also contributed notes for the notorious conversion examinations.

Only notes with which our authors have passed the relevant exams are published here.

Following are some guidelines to note before you download any of the documents to avoid your papers being marked as plagiarized and / or copyright infringements.

  1. Always put down the author(s)’ name(s) and year of the relevant document’s publication as a footnote or directly following the concept you have used. E.g.: Law can have nothing to do with morality, but since law is usually a manifestation of social norms, i.e. “law generally shapes what society deems as acceptable,” it can be said that some aspects of morality have tight pairings with the law in most countries (Lui H.S. 2005 Law and Morality). This, of course, does not apply to template papers such as skeletons, statements of claim, etc.
  2. Do not blatantly copy and paste sections. Always synthesize the material before using it. We do that, you should do it too.
  3. Password requests should be emailed to the webmaster.
  4. I realise that any mistakes in the documents are the author’s cause but I or whoever co-authored the document shall not be liable for any pecuniary damage / loss resulting from their use.
  5. Now, go download.

By downloading the documents, you agree to have had read and have knowledge of the above declaration(s).
Yes, I understand; show me the notes!

Please ask any law-related questions in our forum.

    Dear Cliff,

    I’m currently reading Hong Kong Company Law by Vanessa Stott in preparation for the conversion exams… it is the most rubbish textbook I have ever read and it does not cover topics in much depth. Can you please recommend another textbook?

    hi cliff,
    this comment has nothing to do with cliffnotes but it has something to do with ‘education’, so i’m posting it here if you don’t mind…i study law on the other side of the world and i am thinking of doing an exchange year to HKU. seeing that you’ve done HKU electives, can i ask you a few questions? there’s hardly any info on the HKU LLB over here.
    just give me a buzz via my email!
