司徒毅 法律博士, 博士
香港大學法律學院
中國法律博士

At the University of Hong Kong Faculty of Law I finished my doctorate in Comparative Chinese Law. My PhD thesis compared key constitutional cases of the highest courts of the PRC, Hong Kong, and Taiwan. I taught at the Law School until summer 2011, when I retired.

 

 

The Yin-Yang + Rainbow symbol expresses my scholarly interests in Chinese law plus the legal issues relatlng to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, among other minorities--and the way these subjects intertwine. I take the symbols to advocate inclusiveness for all peoples of "every stripe." As part of these interests, I study the relationship between church and state, as expressed in the cartoon below. For example, click here for my short monograph entitled, "Marriage Wars: Same-Sex Marriage, 'Reserved Rights,' and Mormon Polygamy."

 

Thomas Jefferson, author of the Declaration of Independence and the 3rd president of the United States, coined the felicitous phrase,"the wall of separation between church and state," in 1802. This "wall of separation" is a necessary and concomitant adjunct to the constitutional "separation of powers" and "checks and balances." Click here for my short article on these subjects. Click here to watch a 1960 speech by John F. Kennedy (JFK), who became the 35th president of the US, about the "absolute separation of church and state." Click here for a transcript of his speech.
