Topic: Revisiting the Forum non-convenience and inappropriate Forum
Units: 1 Standard CPD Unit
Recent years have seen an increasing willingness of courts to defer to interstate or overseas jurisdictions for the resolution of commercial disputes.  Accordingly, it is timely to have a refresher of the principles and tests involved in determining a forum non conveniens or an “inappropriate forum” in Australian courts.

Topic: Capitalizing on the Asian market opportunity for SA Law firms – perspective of a premium Asian strategy & investment firm
Units: 1 CPD Unit in Practice Management or Business Skills

Over the past years, Asian economies have witnessed unprecedented growth and today these economies are featured as “must-do” business destinations of the 21st century. Twelve of Australia's fifteen largest markets are now within the Asian region with a total combined trade value in excess of $500 billion. In today’s rapidly changing world, Australia and Asian business relationships are probably more vital than ever before. However, Australia and Asia are very different markets and Asia within itself epitomizes diversity. On one hand, such heterogeneity brings challenges for cross-border business dealings but on the other creates a plethora of opportunities for professional service firms (e.g. management consultants, law firms etc.). The key to success lies in acknowledging and tackling the cultural and business challenges of these different worlds and the smaller ones within. Within Australia, South Australia has been increasingly making the right noises in global/Asian business corridors – be it for energy, F&B and tourism to name a few. What does this mean for lawyers in South Australia? How can they create and act on mutually beneficial opportunities with some key Asian markets such as Japan & ASEAN (incl. Singapore, Malaysia)? This seminar is IGPI’s original and fresh perspective on the same based on its rich and exhaustive Asian advisory experience.
