An Australian International Commercial Court: A Quixotic Concept or a necessity?

This Melbourne Law School webinar featured the Honourable Marilyn Warren AC QC and Professor Doug Jones AO in conversation with MLS Professor John Sharkey AM.


Event synopsis

The capacity of Australia to serve as a regional commercial dispute resolution hub is demonstrated by the high quality of our 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?

On Tuesday 27 October, Melbourne Law School hosted a webinar featuring the Honourable Marilyn Warren AC QC and Professor Doug Jones AO in conversation with MLS Professor John Sharkey AM.
