Opening of the Legal Year 2020 - Speech by the Attorney-General Lucien Wong, S.C.

This is the third time I am addressing Your Honours on this significant occasion. In the course of preparing for this speech, I reviewed my speeches delivered at the two previous Openings of the Legal Year, and saw that they both began by describing 2017 and 2018 as “momentous” and “fast-paced”, respectively. I realised that if I tried for a third time to encapsulate the past year in a single adjective, some astute members of the audience might start to suspect me of recycling my old speeches.
