Inquiry by Roger Gyles AO QC on international arbitration
The submission to the Australian Bar Association’s inquiry on international arbitration, led by the Hon Roger Gyles AO QC was prepared by the International Arbitration Committee of the International Law Section.
International arbitration and other forms of alternative dispute resolution (ADR) are an increasingly important component of the legal services industry. The Law Council, as the national body representing the Australian legal profession, has an important role to play in supporting the profession to take full advantage of the opportunities that international arbitration can provide.
The Law Council has had a longstanding involvement in developing opportunities for Australian arbitrators, including through work on legal services market access.
In 2019, this involvement has been given greater focus through inclusion in the Law Council’s Presidential Plan 2019.
