Choice of Court Agreements Under an International Civil Law Act


19 October 2017

 

Speaker: Michael Douglas, The University of Sydney Law School

The Hague Convention on Choice of Court Agreements aims to ensure the effectiveness of choice of court agreements between parties to international commercial transactions. In late 2016, Parliament's Joint Standing Committee on Treaties recommended that Australia accede to the Convention through a proposed 'International Civil Law Act'. This presentation will consider how accession to the Convention would impact Australian law. Although the Convention largely aligns to the current approach to choice of court agreements in Australian private international law, there are important differences that deserve attention.
