In conjunction with the author, Marcus Jacobs QC, Thomson Reuters has undertaken a major product review and restructure of Commercial Arbitration Law and Practice.
In this product review, vast improvements to navigation have been made as commentary and legislation have been organised into a more logical order; paragraphing has been simplified; cross-references will be updated; and, for the looseleaf version, pagination has been revised.
New features include:
- All legislation will be grouped according to jurisdiction, removing the need to refer to multiple sections when referencing commentary and relevant legislation. A stand-alone Security of Payment Volume will be issued to looseleaf subscribers;
- Two comparative tables: one will compare the Commercial Arbitration Acts and the other will compare the Security of Payment Acts from all Australian jurisdictions. These comparative tables will be published in early 2014;
- New Index (early 2014); and
- New Table of Cases and Statutes (looseleaf version).
The new, cleaner structure focuses on the following areas:
- Commercial Arbitration commentary including the annotated Commercial Arbitration Act 2010 (NSW)
- Commercial Arbitration legislation which includes the current Commercial Arbitration Acts from all other Australian jurisdictions as well as related legislation
- Commentary formerly under the Commercial Arbitration Act 1984 (NSW)
- Alternative Dispute Resolution
- Security of Payment commentary including the annotated Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999 (NSW)
- Security of Payment legislation which includes the current Security of Payment Acts and Regulations from all other Australian jurisdictions
For looseleaf subscribers
Previously 5 volumes, the new version of Commercial Arbitration Law and Practice will be consolidated into 3 user-friendly volumes.
The new version of Commercial Arbitration Law and Practice is available now on Westlaw AU to online subscribers.
For looseleaf subscribers, the volumes and content will be released gradually over the remainder of 2013.
