Sydney Arbitration Week has commenced with an extensive and interesting programme of arbitration conferences, seminars and presentations. One of the key events is the Fourth International Arbitration Conference which is organised by the Business Law Section of the Law Council of Australia, the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators, Australia branch, and ACICA. Singapore partner Alastair Henderson spoke on recent issues in international arbitration. Later in the week, on Thursday, 24 November, Brenda Horrigan, new Head of International Arbitration (Australia) based in Sydney, will be speaking at an ArbitralWomen breakfast event entitled Arbitration in China and the Asia-Pacific Region. She will also be presenting at a Young ICCA arbitration skills workshop on Friday, 25 November.
