Ross Parsons Centre Law & Business seminar: Common mistakes in using national uniform legislation

National uniform legislation underpins major areas of regulation in commercial and corporate law. Here are few examples in these major areas: regulation of corporations, cooperatives, consumer protection, commercial arbitration, electronic conveyancing, defamation and business names.

Today’s legal profession is “born to the age of statutes”. What are the main pitfalls in reading and interpreting national uniform legislation? Uniform legislation is not a panacea for all legal challenges but the growth in this area warrants close academic attention to take a step towards demystifying some of confusing factors that are obscuring the underlying general principles.

This practical presentation summarises the main findings of analysis of close to 100 sets of uniform Acts across a number of areas of law, so it can be applied by legal practitioners and academics working with harmonised legislation.
