Colloquium on the Choice of Courts Convention
Friday 3 October 2008, School of Law, USQ
The Choice of Courts Convention has been presented as either an important step towards securing the harmonisation of rules of jurisdiction for international commercial and trading relationships or – compared with the draft convention of 1999 – a consolation prize of limited scope and use. This Colloquium will explore the significance of the Choice of Courts Convention, examine its implications for other areas of transnational law, and investigate legal questions that it raises - in general and specifically for Australia.
The Colloquium is being held at the Law School at the University of Southern Queensland, Toowoomba, Australia, on Friday 3 October 2008, and is coordinated by Professor Reid Mortensen.
To attend please contact Mary Ann Armstrong.
