Family Arbitration – the first three years

Whilst arbitration has been referred to within the Family Law Act since 1991, it was not until the introduction of amended Family Law Rules in April 2016 that it became possible for Courts to order arbitration.

This webinar will consider data collected by the Federal Circuit Court of Australia of the matters referred to arbitration in the three years from 1 April 2016 to 1 April, 2019.

This data deals with the number of matters referred to arbitration, how they have been concluded, the applications made to object to registration, review or set aside awards and the growing body of precedent relating to these matters.

Consideration will also be given to who is conducting arbitration, the role of self-representation in arbitration and challenges and proposals for the future use of arbitration.
