Courts uphold arbitration laws in Australia

TCL Air Conditioner (Zhongshan) Co Ltd v The Judges of the Federal Court of Australia [2013] HCA 5 (13 March 2013)

In brief: The High Court has upheld the constitutional validity of recent amendments to federal arbitration legislation that were made to strengthen Australia’s international arbitration regime by better providing for the finality of arbitral awards. This follows a recent decision by the Supreme Court of New South Wales which preserved corresponding amendments to state legislation governing domestic arbitrations for largely the same reasons.
