Continuing Professional Development
The next Commercial Law Section CPD seminar will be held on Wednesday 1 May 2019 at 5.15pm in the Bar Association Common Room. Details are as follows:
- Title: Practice Opportunities in International Commercial Arbitration
- Speaker: Hon Roger Gyles AO, QC
- Commentator: Tim Castle, Chair, ABA International Committee
International Commercial Arbitration is a topic of much interest for the commercial Bar. Last year, the Australian Bar Association (ABA) asked Mr Gyles to inquire into and report upon practice opportunities for Australian Barristers in the Asia-Pacific Region. Having consulted widely and considered submissions on this important topic, Mr Gyles, as a former President of the NSW and Australian Bars amongst other roles, is extremely well placed to share some insights in relation to this topic. Additional comments will be provided by Mr Castle, about the work being done by the ABA’s International Committee on this issue, in advance of the ABA’s Singapore Conference on 10-11 July.
