ACICA and the University of New South Wales are pleased to launch the first Survey on the Use of International Commercial Arbitration in Australia’s Trade and Commercial Practice.

This research, jointly conducted by the UNSW Law School and ACICA, constitutes the first empirical study undertaken focusing on patterns of use in international commercial arbitration in the context of Australian trade and commerce. The objective of the research is to explore recent trends and preferences and examine the attitudes of the legal profession, arbitrators, corporate users and experts involved with international commercial arbitration over the course of the last five years (2012–2016). The research aims to identify the key features influencing users’ choices and provide an insight into how the use of international commercial arbitration has developed over recent years in the context of Australian-related trade and commerce. The results of this survey will form the basis of a report and other publications.

Invitation to Participate

Participation in this survey is invited from those who have experienced international commercial arbitration (whether from a transactional or disputes perspective) in the context of Australian trade and commerce in the course of the last five years (2012–2016). If you meet this criteria and are interested in participating in the survey, please follow the link to Take the Survey.

The survey consists of an online questionnaire which we expect should take no longer than 30 minutes to complete. Any information obtained in connection with this research that can identify participants will remain strictly confidential.

Your involvement in this research is greatly appreciated and will contribute to a greater understanding of the use of international commercial arbitration in Australia and the region, and inform collective promotional and educational efforts in this area.

Further information can be found on the attached flyer.
