The Australian Association of Constitutional Law invites members to a seminar on "The Intersection Between Arbitration Law and Constitutional Principles", presented by Justin T Gleeson SC (Banco Chambers) and Mr Jonathon A Redwood (Banco Chambers) on Thursday, 13 September 2012ï¿½in Court 18B,ï¿½Federal Court, Queens Square at 5:30pm.
Federalism, both in the USA and Australia, limits but also encourages the development of domestic arbitration law. It has already been suggested that Chapter III of the Commonwealth Constitution may influence the structure of the arbitral process: PMT Partners Pty Ltd v Australian National Parks (1995) 184 CLR 301, 320â321. This paper considers ways in which these constitutional challenges might be addressed within the framework of the everâ converging international law of arbitration, and in a way that promotes Australian jurisdictions as international centres for alternative dispute resolution.
Commentators: Dr Andrew S Bell SC (Eleven Wentworth Chambers) and Mr Will Bateman (Freehills)
Chair: The Hon Justice Ruth McColl AO (NSW Court of Appeal)
