United Nations Day Lecture

  • Courtroom 1, Federal Court of Australia 1 Victoria Avenue Perth, WA, 6000 Australia (map)

The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) was founded 50 years ago. Its achievements have accompanied the boom in global trade and investment since that time, including in areas such as international arbitration, cross-border insolvency, sale of goods, electronic commerce and secured transactions. UNCITRAL has now taken on a major new mandate to consider the future of Investor State Dispute Settlement (ISDS), amongst a range of other work. Where will this lead?

The UN Day Lecture is an initiative of the UNCITRAL National Coordination Committee for Australia (UNCCA). It will be presented around Australia to introduce lawyers, academics and students to the past and future work of UNCITRAL. Admission will be free, but registration is required.

Chair: Justice Neil McKerracher
Speaker: Tim D. Castle, Barrister and Chair UNCCA
Commentary: Professor Camilla Andersen, University of Western Australia
