Professor Doug Jones AO will join The Hon Marilyn Warren AC QC and Professor John Sharkey AM in a webinar discussion hosted by Melbourne Law School on 27 October 2020.
The title of the discussion is “An Australian International Commercial Court: A Quixotic Concept or a necessity?”
The capacity of Australia to serve as a regional commercial dispute resolution hub is demonstrated by the high quality of Australia’s lawyers, judges, and cutting-edge International Arbitration legislation and jurisprudence. To achieve this objective, a further critical element is the establishment of an International Commercial Court. This has been demonstrated in England, and more recently in Singapore. Can Australia harness the nationwide skills of its commercial judges, combine the disparate fora now available, and present a national offering?
