In every legislative election held since the creation of the Hong Kong SAR, Ng has been returned with resounding majorities to represent the Legal Functional Constituency. Ng belongs to the Basic Law Article 45 Concern Group (the former Basic Law Article 23 Concern Group), a pro-democratic organization which has specifically campaigned against the efforts of the pro-Beijing administration to abridge the civil liberties of Hong Kong residents. Ng is also an executive committee member of the Civic Party.

Before entering legal practice, Margaret Ng worked at the University of Hong Kong and Chase Manhattan Bank (now JP Morgan Chase). She also held senior positions in journalism, serving as publisher and deputy editor-in-chief of the Ming Pao newspaper; and as columnist for South China Morning Post.

Besides being a lawyer and journalist of profound experience and acumen, Ng is also an accomplished expert in the fields of philosophy and literature. She has written several volumes of critical studies on the wuxia novels of Jin Yong and earned her Doctor of Philosophy degree from Boston University.

She appeared in a BBC documentary, The Last Governor, which followed Chris Patten and the last years of British rule in Hong Kong.

Like many politicians from the Pan-democrat camp, Ng is denied entry into the Mainland. On 12 September 1999, she was barred travel there to attend a conference on China's constitution.
