On Friday 20 January 2017, Clare Montgomery QC will deliver the inaugural lecture in a new landmark Criminal Law Lecture Series. Boase Cohen & Collins are collaborating with the University of Hong Kong’s Faculty of Law to deliver, over the course of 3 years, a series of lectures by prominent criminal law scholars and practitioners of international repute. Within this initial lecture Clare will be speaking about Joint Enterprise, a three-decade-old legal principle that allows someone to be convicted of murder even if they did not strike the fatal blow. This topic is currently of immense interest due to a landmark ruling by the UK’s Supreme Court and Privy Council earlier this year and its historic connection with Hong Kong.

The landmark event, formally titled the “University of Hong Kong and Boase Cohen & Collins Lecture Series in Criminal Law”, will be taking place at 7PM at the HKU Faculty of Law’s Moot Court auditorium in Pokfulam, Hong Kong.
