About Us

Welcome Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the homepage of the Legal Aid Department of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.

Our mission is to ensure that any person who has reasonable grounds for taking or defending a legal action is not deprived from doing so because of lack of means. Over the years, our services have expanded considerably to meet the changing needs of the community. Legal Aid has and will continue to contribute towards upholding the rule of law in Hong Kong. This homepage will help you understand more about us - our pledges, our services, our structure and more.

I hope you will find our homepage useful and informative. Your comments or suggestions are welcome.

Thomas E KWONG, JP
Director of Legal Aid
