About the Lecture

The annual International Arbitration lecture, presented by Clayton Utz and supported by the University of Sydney, brings together key figures in international arbitration and the Australian business community to explore the real issues that could affect their international operations, and how international dispute resolution can contribute to their bottom line.

2019 marks the 18th anniversary of the International Arbitration Lecture series, which continues to attract guest speakers from the four corners of the world to give their insights into the challenges facing international arbitration.


Topic: Arbitration in Australia - Rising to the Challenge

With robust legislation, an independent and supportive judiciary, and effective arbitral institutions, Australia has emerged as a competitive seat for arbitration in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. In this lecture, Professor Doug Jones AO explores the developments that have allowed Australian arbitration to flourish, identifies challenges which remain, and suggests how by working together Australians can ensure that Australia's domestic and international arbitration regimes not only retain, but enhance, their competitiveness in the future.
