Daisy Cheung is an Assistant Professor of Law and Deputy Director and Research Fellow at the Centre for Medical Ethics and Law, The University of Hong Kong. Daisy’s research focuses on mental health and capacity law. Her publications include analyses on a number of issues related to Hong Kong’s Mental Health Ordinance (MHO), including compulsory detention and treatment, conditional discharge and the problematic way in which mental capacity is conceived of and assessed in different contexts under the MHO. She has published on public mental health ethics in the Covid-19 context, and has written on mental capacity law and ethics across several contexts, including an RGC-funded project on adult guardianship regimes and an edited collection on advance medical directives in Asia (Cambridge University Press 2023). She is currently working on a RGC-funded project on best interests determinations on behalf of individuals who lack capacity, and an ongoing project on the restoration of decision-making capacity under the Mental Capacity Act 2005. She currently teaches the course ‘Mental Disability and the Law’ and Law of Tort tutorials. She is a member of the Mental Health Law Committee of the Law Society of Hong Kong and is a co-founder of a support group for persons on conditional discharge in Hong Kong.
