Mediation in Hong Kong


Mediation in Hong Kong SAR by Shahla F. Ali &  A. K. C. Koo, both of the University of Hong Kong

According to this article, the Hong Kong Mediation Ordinance came into force on 1 January 2013. "It aims to provide a regulatory framework for promoting the use of mediation as a dispute resolution process and protecting the confidential nature of mediation communications... it prohibits disclosure or admissibility of mediation communications unless in exceptional circumstances or with leave of the court."

"At present, Hong Kong has not adopted legislation based on the Model Law on International Commercial Conciliation of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (the ‘Model Law’). Its adoption seems unlikely"
