About the Event

The UNCITRAL National Coordination Committee for Australia (UNCCA) invites you to

attend its Seventh Annual May Seminar, to be held online as a webinar. This year we

celebrate the 25th anniversary of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Electronic Commerce

1996, and the 20th Anniversary of the UNCITRAL Model Law on Electronic Signatures

2001.

Both of these Model Laws and the subsequent United Nations Convention on Electronic

Communications in International Contracts 2005 have had a profound effect on the

regulation of electronic commerce globally. In Australia, all of these developments have

been incorporated in the Electronic Transactions Acts passed by the Commonwealth and

all States and Territories. During 2020 the relevance of these enactments came to the fore

as a result of the COVID pandemic.

In this live, interactive webinar, expert commentators from UNCITRAL and Australia will

review the history of these developments in ecommerce, the current state of the law, as

well as issues that are being considered for future work nationally and globally. A full list

of speakers will be available shortly.

In order to reserve your place at this webinar, please register and save the date. Registration

is required but is free for current UNCCA fellows and includes an extended one-year

associate membership for others, including student purchases. Non-membership registration is also available.
