Doug Jones Book Launch

On May 4, 2011, Doug Jones’ book Commercial Arbitration in Australia was launched by Federal Attorney-General, the Hon. Robert McClelland MP, in front of an audience of over 100 attendees which included Chief Justice Spigelman and several Federal Court and Supreme Court judges.

Commercial Arbitration in Australia will undoubtedly be useful for day-to-day legal practice as it comprehensively and systematically explains what the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General 2010 decision to enact new uniform commercial arbitration legislation in each jurisdiction actually means for practitioners. It is a must-read for practitioners with an interest in alternative dispute resolution. Reviews of Commercial Arbitration in Australia can be found here.

    See reviews of Commercial arbitration in Australia
    Commercial Arbitration in Australia will undoubtedly become the go-to source for guidance on Australian arbitration law… It will also serve as a touchstone for reformers considering the UNCITRAL Model Law as a template for domestic arbitration law and, for the rest of use, an increasingly important frame of reference for comparisons of many points of law and practice.”

    — Thomas J Stipanowich, review published in The International Construction Law Review 2011 (Part 4), p. 494.

    “For the student, the lawyer, the barrister, the arbitrator and the judge it is an essential text for anyone working in the commercial jurisdictions.”

    — Remarks of the Honourable Marilyn Warren AC Chief Justice of Victoria on the occasion of the launch of Commercial Arbitration in Australia by Adjunct Professor Doug Jones AM RFD at Clayton Utz, Melbourne. (Read more).

    The book is a tour de force. We predict that it will remain the leading textbook in Australia for a long time. It will be of significant assistance to both counsel and arbitrators in all Australian jurisdictions.”

    — Gabriël Moens and Philip Evans, review published in The ACICA News (September 2011), p. 24. An abridged version of this review was also published in Construction Law International (October 2011) p. 41.

    “I certainly do not know my way around the new Uniform Laws, which I have not yet had course to apply. When I do, I will turn to Jones for confirmation as to whether habits and practice from a superceded legislative scheme are required to be modified or improved. In summary, no shortcomings as the Every[persons’] Guide to Arbitration in Australia.”

    — Gavan Griffith, review published in the ADR Reporter (July 2011), p. 14.

    “Professor Doug Jones’ Commercial Arbitration in Australia will prove to be a major source to which the arbitral profession, the legal profession and law students will turn as the prime source of Australian domestic commercial arbitration law and commentary when dealing with arbitral problems and practice.”

    — James N. Creer, review published in the Law Society Journal (October 2011), p. 92.

    Commercial Arbitration in Australia is an essential and timely guide which will greatly assist legal practitioners to understand the impact of the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General’s decision in 2010 to develop uniform arbitration legislation in each jurisdiction.”

    — Remarks of the Hon. Robert McClelland MP Federal Attorney-General, on the occasion of the launch of Commercial Arbitration in Australia at Clayton Utz, Sydney. (Read more).
