Queensland Law Society

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:

  1. 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
  2. move towards a National Uniform Commercial Code, including a Uniform Arbitration Code, to promote Australia as a venue for arbitration of international disputes.
