James Morrison, Mary Flanagan, 'Recent Developments in International Arbitration in Australia 2015/2016' (2016) 33 Journal of International Arbitration, Issue 6, pp. 723–737


This article provides an update on recent major developments in international arbitration in Australia during 2015 and 2016. It considers amendments to the legislative framework, including several much needed updates to the International Arbitration Act 1974 (Cth), as well as the latest round of changes to the ACICA Arbitration Rules. An overview of recent court decisions is also provided, including the much publicised decision of Giedo van der Garde v Sauber Motorsport AG [2015] VSC 80. Overall, these developments show that Australia continues to build upon its strengths as a potential venue for international arbitrations and is moving closer to becoming a key player in the competitive Asia Pacific market.
