A delegation from the Qatar International Court and Dispute Resolution Centre (QICDRC) travelled to Sydney, Australia, in order to sponsor the Annual Conference of the International Bar Association.
The 2017 conference, which finished at the weekend, was attended by more than 4,000 judges, lawyers and other legal professionals who congregated to attend sessions on a wide variety of legal issues, including anti-corruption, arbitration, construction, crime, health, human rights, environment, financial services, insolvency, intellectual property, international trade and Customs, litigation, mediation, media, mining, oil and gas, technology, and transportation.
A highlight of the week was the Arab Regional Forum lunch, which also had - as its exclusive sponsor - the QICDRC. The lunch provided an opportunity for dialogue between legal professionals from various Middle Eastern countries as well as those from the international legal and business community who conduct business in the Middle East.
QICDRC registrar Christopher Grout said, “Once again, the Arab Regional Forum lunch has provided an excellent opportunity for dialogue for those in the region as well as for those outside it.”
During the conference, Grout spoke about litigation and arbitration in Qatar as well as about the importance of employment laws that strive to protect fundamental rights and freedoms. As to the latter, Grout talked about the improvements that had been made in Qatar following recent changes in the law and commented upon the employment framework in the Qatar Financial Centre (QFC).
Justice Frances Kirkham, a judge of the QICDRC, was also part of the delegation and she focused on sessions relating to arbitration and construction.
