Forum Non Conveniens in Australia: A Comparative Analysis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


This paper considers the doctrine of forum non conveniens as applied in Australian law today. The acceptance of the clearly inappropriate forum test, as opposed to the more appropriate forum test, has made it more difficult for a party to have a matter adjourned on the basis of forum non conveniens. This article argues there is no justification for this more stringent test.
