Hilary Heilbron QC to share her insights at the 14th Annual International Arbitration Lecture
The annual Clayton Utz and University of Sydney International Arbitration Lecture is designed to promote and support the development and study of international arbitration and international dispute resolution in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
This year's 2015 International Arbitration Lecture, to be held on Wednesday, 25 November, will be the 14th annual lecture organised by Clayton Utz in conjunction with the University of Sydney.
This year we are delighted to welcome Hilary Heilbron QC, globally-renowned counsel, arbitrator and author in the field of international arbitration, who will present on the topic "Dynamics, discretion and diversity ‒ A recipe for unpredictability in international arbitration?" to an audience of international arbitration practitioners, academics and students. One of the foremost strengths of international arbitration has long been said to be its adaptability to disputes arising across a variety of industries, jurisdictions and cultures. But does this come at a price? This lecture will focus on unpredictability in international arbitration, its causes and consequences, and countervailing measures that can be adopted.
Queen's Counsel and Deputy High Court Judge Hilary Heilbron has extensive experience and expertise in commercial disputes and international arbitration, having acted as counsel and arbitrator for a variety of national and international clients in a wide range of complex matters. She holds appointments to the panels of leading arbitration institutions, including the London Court of International Arbitration and the International Chamber of Commerce, and is an active member of professional associations such as the International Bar Association. She has also spoken, taught and authored extensively in the field.
The annual Clayton Utz and University of Sydney International Arbitration Lecture is designed to promote and support the development and study of international arbitration and international dispute resolution in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.
