    RP Law & Business Series: Business & Human Rights

    6 August 2014

    Issues of human rights are now central to the way in which business engages in cross-border transactions. The publication in 2011 of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights highlights in many different ways the relevance of the conduct of corporations and their complicity in human rights abuses to the protections granted by the legal system. The doctrine of necessity and how it responds to the new globalised world of business is one of the most important developments in international law and one that all businesses and their advisors must understand, leading to practical implications in the structuring and conduct of cross border transactions.

    About the speakers:

    Donald Robertson, Senior partner, Herbert Smith Freehills practises international law and international arbitration arising from commercial transactions. He is an affiliate of the Sydney Centre for International Law, and a member of the Journal of Contract Law's editorial board. An Adjunct Professor of Law at University of Sydney Law School, Donald teaches international contract law and related subjects.

    Associate Professor Ian Lee, (University of Toronto)clerked with Justice Claire L'Heureux-Dubé of the Supreme Court of Canada and Justice Mark MacGuigan of the Federal Court of Appeal, and later served as a legal researcher with the Privy Council Office.

    Chair: Professor Jennifer Hill, Sydney Law School
