Topic: Asian contract law - 50 years on

Presenter: Professor Mary Hiscock - Emeritus Professor of Law, Bond University

A number of factors converge to produce a quandary for international transactional lawyers, a category including comparative and commercial lawyers. Foreign and trade policy of Australia and of the US has a focus on "Asia". 

The lawyer may not see a legal counterpart, but merely a group of regional collectives forming free trade agreements and free trade areas in an uncertain geographic space. Will these generate a specific area of Asian law, both public and private, that will affect cross border transactions? How much of the European experience will rub off?
