Underpinning the policy objective of consolidating Hong Kong as a leading centre for international legal and dispute resolution services in the Asia-Pacific region, the Government will provide certain space to law-related organisations (LROs) in the West Wing of the former Central Government Offices (CGO) and the former French Mission Building for the provision of such services. Together with the DoJ offices in the Main Wing, the East Wing and part of the West Wing of the former CGO, the area will become a Legal Hub at the heart of Hong Kong.
A Committee on Provision of Space in the Legal Hub chaired by the Secretary for Justice has been set up to consider matters relating to the provision of space to LROs in the Legal Hub. The Committee considers the applications and advises on the selection of LROs based on assessment of the relative merits of prospective organisations.
Following the conclusion of the Stage 1 and Supplementary application exercises earlier, a Stage 2 application exercise for the provision of space to eligible LROs in the Legal Hub has been launched. The application deadline is 28 December 2018. Late application will not be accepted. The application form and a guide to application can be downloaded by clicking here.
