For those wanting to download the power point slides from my session on preparing for family law arbitration, see attached.
Musings of a busy mind
On Friday, Singapore's Ministry of Law launched a public consultation round for its International Arbitration Act.
Singapore is a major regional player in arbitration, and any changes to their legislation is worthy of note, particularly in the context of the recent changes to the New Zealand Arbitration Act 1996.
It's 5 years since Sir David Williams QC, Deborah Hart and I sat down to dinner with then Attorney-General, Hon Christopher Finlayson QC, to discuss the benefits of promoting New Zealand as a destination for international arbitration, and the amendments we would like to the Arbitration Act 1996.
Finally, this evening, the Bill has been passed into law - with some amendment, it has to be said, but passed into law it has. Nice to be credited in Andrew Bayly MP's opening comments. It's not every day you get noted in Hansard!
