The Progressive Lawyers Group was established by a group of Hong Kong lawyers in January 2015, shortly after the Umbrella Movement. In the face of a decline in democracy, rule of law and freedom in Hong Kong, we felt it was imperative for the legal profession to come forward and speak for the Hong Kong people. Since our establishment, we have been at the forefront of the democratic movement in Hong Kong, championing human rights and the rule of law. We actively engage with our community through writing for and participating in interviews with local and international media, conducting legal research, bill drafting, educational seminars, school talks, street stations, rallies, campaigns and community work. We are modest in size but our goals reflect an ambitious vision for the future of Hong Kong. We will continue to serve our society with passion and dedication and hope that our work will help enhance democracy, rule of law and freedom in Hong Kong.
