Australian Business Law Review, Vol 50, Part 1

ABLR Vol 50, Part 1 is out.

I am particularly excited to be bringing you Volume 50 which marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of the ABLR.  The ABLR was first conceived and founded by Bob Baxt in 1972 with the first edition coming out in 1973. Bob remained the General Editor of the ABLR for the next 44 years, stepping down in 2018 due to ill health.

The fact that the ABLR is still going strong after 50 years is a testament to both Bob’s vision as to the need for a general business law journal presenting articles on a wide range of legal areas, as well as to his untiring work as the General Editor of the ABLR. It is a great privilege to have been able to continue Bob’s exceptional work as the General Editor of the ABLR.

This edition features four excellent contributions:

* Accountability of the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and the Establishment of the Financial Regulator Assessment Authority – An Evaluation by Lloyd Freeburn and Ian Ramsay

* Contested Mergers and the ACCC’S Proposed Merger Reforms by Holly CaoStephen King and Graeme Samuel AC

* Multinational Enterprise and Corporate Governance of Foreign Subsidiaries Post- Vedanta: Responsibility or Risk Management? by Alice Klettner

* No, Business Names Cannot Be Licensed: Lawton Pty Ltd v FHMC Pty Ltd by Timothy Magarry 

I would again like to encourage prospective authors to consider submitting their articles to the ABLR. One significant advantage of seeking to publish your article in the ABLR is our much quicker turnaround times compared to other leading legal journals. We aim to publish practical business law articles on topical issues in a timely manner, which means we have to operate on shorter time frames.

I would also like to encourage all qualifying authors who have written articles for the ABLR to consider nominating for one of the Law Council Scholarships and Prizes - check out the following links for more detail

* Gaire Blunt Scholarship - competition law

* Santow Scholarship - corporations law

* Forsyth/Pose Scholarship - taxation law
