THE LATEST in developments and initiatives in arbitration, mediation and adjudication will be discussed at a national conference on alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in South Australia in June.

Dubbed New Horizons in ADR by the Institute of Arbitrators and Mediators Australia (IAMA), the conference will offer two days of discussions along with the launch of the Arbitration Rules (incorporating the Fast Track Arbitration Rules), major announcements concerning developments in bilateral agreements, and a panel discussion of international speakers including representatives from the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission (CIETAC).

Topics for discussion include recommendations for the amendments of the uniform commercial arbitration acts of the states and territories; the challenges and opportunities for private mediation in the post WorkChoices workplace; western mediation and dispute resolution practices in Asia-Pacific region; and emerging trends in adjudication in Malaysia.

A host of eminent judges will be speaking at the conference, such as the Honourable John Doyle, Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of South Australia; the Honourable Justice Bruce Debelle of the Supreme Court of South Australia and chairman of the Judicial Conference of Australia; and the Honourable Justice John Hamilton of the Supreme Court of NSW.

Other speakers include the Honourable Sir Laurence Street QC; the Honourable Andrew Rogers QC; the Honourable Christopher Kourakis QC, solicitor-general of South Australia; Malcolm Holmes QC; Stephen Walsh QC; the Honourable Nick Xenophon; Dato Kevin Woo, president of the Malaysian Institute of Arbitrators; and the Honourable Trevor Griffin, former attorney-general of South Australia.

The conference will be held at the Stamford Grand, Adelaide, from 1 to 3 June. Enquiries to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
