dc.description.abstract Abstract: Hong Kong, like much of the world, is facing public criticism about the operation and accessibility of its civil litigation system. One judge and scholar has suggested increased use of a litigation rule requiring solicitors to pay any costs wasted by their misconduct. By comparing this rule to its counterparts in the United Kingdom and the United States, it becomes apparent that such a solution could work to improve litigation in Hong Kong. Increased use of the rule would compensate parties injured by abusive litigation tactics and deter solicitors from engaging in misconduct to line their pockets or win for their client through unethical means. en_US
