The United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) is best known in Australia for its work in the field of international arbitration. However this is only one of many areas of work undertaken in a wide range of areas relating to the harmonisation of international commercial law.

Jenny Clift has a unique perspective on the relationship between Australia and UNCITRAL having worked for many years in the Commonwealth Attorney-General’s Department in Canberra, before joining the UNCITRAL Secretariat in Vienna over 14 years ago. Ms Clift is well versed in all areas of border insolvency, where she is the Secretary of Working Group V which concerns insolvency issues. 

The UNCCA is an autonomous committee recognised by UNCITRAL, and has recently been formed with the support of the Law Council of Australia to increase awareness of UNCITRAL’s activities in Australia.
