2019 Call to Parties Statement
8. Develop our region and our profession
Law is the language of trade and a strong legal profession is a foundation stone of the rule of law locally and throughout our region. The Queensland legal profession has a role to play in developing strong legal infrastructure in the Pacific.
Queensland Law Society calls for a commitment to:
- investigate promoting the Federal Court as a hub for arbitration of international disputes with Brisbane as the centre for dispute resolution in the Pacific and surrounding regions
- move towards a National Uniform Commercial Code, including a Uniform Arbitration Code, to promote Australia as a venue for arbitration of international disputes.
