Commercial Arbitration in Australia provides an essential and timely guide to domestic commercial arbitration in Australia following the 2010 decision by the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General (SCAG) to enact new uniform commercial arbitration legislation in each jurisdiction.

The new uniform legislation, which has already been enacted in New South Wales, uses the UNCITRAL Model Law as its basis with deviations necessary for the Australian domestic setting.

These substantive and procedural changes to Australia’s existing domestic arbitration law make a new and comprehensive text on this topic essential.

Commercial Arbitration in Australia will provide the reader with:

  • background to the reform process,
  • in-depth consideration of relevant case law from around the world, as influenced by the UNCITRAL Model Law,
  • Australian jurisprudence on arbitration law and practice,
  • section-by-section commentary on the new Commercial Arbitration Act 2010 (NSW), which follows the SCAG's model provisions, and
  • discussion of alternative forms of dispute resolution.
This work is a ’must have’ for anyone involved in commercial dispute resolution in Australia whether as a party to the arbitration, counsel, neutral or student.

Professor Doug Jones AM is a leading dispute resolution lawyer and academic and holds the international Presidency of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators in 2011. He is recognised both nationally and internationally for his achievements in the promotion and practice of commercial arbitration and ADR. He holds eminent positions in several leading ADR organisations, including President of the Australian Centre for International Commercial Arbitration, Director of the Australian International Disputes Centre, and member of the LCIA Court.

Doug holds Professorial appointments at Melbourne and Murdoch Universities and teaches in Australia and abroad and is uniquely placed to provide authoritative analysis of Australia's future domestic commercial arbitration system and its relationship with international arbitration arrangements.
