The legal tradition in Hong Kong and Arab are quite different. In Hong Kong, the legal profession consists of solicitor and barrister while in Arab there is no such split.

Lawyer, solicitor, barrister, attorney at law, 

In Hong Kong, the lawyers are called solicitors, and the Hong Kong lawyers that attends the court hearing are called counsels or barristers. Although solicitors also have audience right for certain court hearing, it is very limited. In Arab, all lawyers have the audience rights to attend court hearing of all levels. Lawyers are also call attorney at law. 

Judicial Reform

There is an increasing voice for reform of the judicial system in Hong Kong, as that in Arab. The present judicial system is inherited from the UK.  In recent years, there are voices that the judicial system need reformation to reflect the rapid change of the society. The handover of sovereignty marked great changes of the legal system, but the reform of the judcial system appears to be slow to reflect the change.
