The Honorable Mr. Justice Bokhary has had a distinguished professional career in Hong Kong, culminating in his appointment as one of the founding members of the Court of Final Appeal. Until his retirement as a Permanent Justice in 2012 he was the longest-serving member of the CFA.

Justice Bokhary was appointed a non-permanent Judge of the Court of Final Appeal in 2012. As a non-permanent Judge, he is better placed to make a greater contribution to the Faculty as an Honorary Professor, and has indicated on his long-standing relationship with the Faculty of Law. These include his role as Chair of the Faculty Advisory Board (since its establishment) and Chair of the PCLL Academic Board.
