The Future of International Arbitration in Australia

  • Albert Monichino QC Victorian Bar


It has almost been five years since the Australian arbitral legislative regime was substantially amended. The avowed purpose of the reforms was to position Australia as an attractive seat for arbitration in the Asia-Pacific region. It is opportune to reflect on how far Australia has come in that time and the challenges and opportunities going forward. It is well appreciated that the formal infrastructure of a jurisdiction is highly influential in determining its attractiveness as a potential seat for international dispute resolution. This includes its arbitration legislation and the reputation and attitude of its courts. In this paper I will concentrate on those matters instead of broader considerations which impact on the future of international arbitration in Australia.[1]
