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
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.
