Conference Theme

"Companies that embrace innovation, that are agile and prepared to approach change confidently and with a sense of optimism are more competitive, more able to grow market share and more likely to increase their employment. More jobs, more growth - that is the focus of my government,"
(Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull at the launch of the National Innovation and Science Agenda 7th December, 2015.)

As Governments world-wide focus on innovation to drive economic growth and prosperity, the need for adequate risk management, transparency and accountability has never been greater.

The theme for the 2017 CLTA Conference is "Agile Corporate Law: CSR, Innovation & Environment". The 2017 conference theme focuses on the challenges facing corporate law in responding to an agile and innovative corporate culture, and the impact this may have on ensuring a sustainable future for society both domestically and internationally.

Apart from the conference theme, participants may also consider the following streams for their conference paper:

  • Corporate regulation and enforcement;
  • Securities and financial services regulation;
  • Corporate Governance (Directors' Duties, Stakeholder and Shareholder Issues);
  • Corporate ethics and social responsibility;
  • Comparative corporate law;
  • International or historical perspectives on Corporate and Insolvency Law;
  • Corporate law reform measures.

Our keynote speaker, Professor Sally Wheeler, Head of Law, Queen's University Belfast Ireland (previously at Birbeck & University of Leeds), will open the conference. The following day a panel of speakers will present views on "What is in need of innovation within Australian Corporate Law?"
