Our firm acted for 803 Funds Limited in its judicial review application against the Secretary for Education for his refusal to disclose “the names of the schools and the teachers involved and the findings and results of investigation in the substantiated cases” of professional misconduct of teachers. This case had attracted much public attention.


The Honourable Chow JA in his Judgment of 28 September 2021 granted permission to our client to make an application for judicial review as our client’s case was reasonably arguable with a realistic prospect of success.


While the Court, after full consideration of the arguments on “Fairness”, “Adverse Impacts” and “Trust and Confidence” and other Grounds, rejected the substantive judicial review application, the Court made no order on legal costs as the application was reasonably arguable.


The case was led by our partners Peter Sit, Alex Chan and assisted by our associate Alan So.
