October saw our 6th Annual Conference on the Future of the Commercial Contract in Scholarship and Law Reform.
This was the second of these events in the series held live online via Zoom. We had the pleasure and honour again to welcome a number of eminent and inspiring speakers on topics concerning ‘building back better’ after the pandemic as well as in support of environmental progress. Our long-time arbitration panel chair Hendrik Puschmann
of Farrer & Co in London commended this event as
“the longest running most innovative conference that brings together practitioners and theoreticians in the commercial law sphere in the wider sense and has been a fountain of cross-fertilisation between the two.”
Joining us from pretty much all global time zones we had Professor David Freestone
as main keynote speaker starting the special panel on energy trading issues, David Calnan
as panel keynote speaker for the contractual sustainability panel, Professor Gerard McMeel QC
as a fantastic roundtable discussant of Marc Moore’s paper on unfair terms regulation. Purchasing our recording
of the event is highly recommended!
