CALC JAMAICA CONFERENCE 2024 – registration and call for papers now open!

CALC Jamaica conference logo 

CALC will meet again in Jamaica at the Ocean Eden Bay Hotel in Trelawny, Jamaica, from Monday 13 to Wednesday 15 May 2024.

CALC’s celebration of our 40th year concludes with our first full in-person Conference in 5 years. Following our hugely successful regional events held throughout 2023 in Europe, the Asia-Pacific and Africa, the next full CALC Conference will be held in the Americas region with a long overdue return to the Caribbean.

CALC members from every jurisdiction are invited and encouraged to attend and participate in a conference that will provide 3 days of learning, collaboration and networking opportunities at a gathering with colleagues from across the Commonwealth and beyond.  

Delegates coming to Jamaica will also be able to experience the vibrant culture, thrilling adventures, breathtaking beaches and irresistible flavours of the local cuisine. If the vibes you crave are for regulations or reggae, or perhaps a bit of both, this conference will meet your expectations.

The conference is in-person only.

Registration

You can register for the conference here: REGISTER FOR CALC JAMAICA 2024.

The conference fee is $595 USD. This fee covers all days of the Conference, and the Gala Dinner on 14 May. There is an ‘early bird’ registration fee of $525 USD available for bookings and payments made by 29 February.

Delegates wishing to bring a guest to the Gala Dinner will be able to do so for $75 USD.

We strongly encourage members to register and book accommodation as early as possible. The “early bird” discounted registration fee of $525 USD will only apply until 29 February and special accommodation rates available at the conference hotel are limited.

We intend to leave registration open until 26 April 2024 but may need to curtail registration earlier if capacity limits are reached, in which case a reserve list will be available.

The conference fee is on the basis that delegates are staying at the Ocean Eden Bay Hotel (see below), which is an all-inclusive hotel. If delegates are not staying at the Ocean Eden Bay (or its sibling Hotel, the Ocean Coral Spring), a supplement of $95 USD is payable directly to the Ocean Eden Bay for each day at the conference venue.

If you have problems arranging payment online, please contact the CALC Treasurer, Annalee Murphy, at annalee.murphy@gov.scot.

Accommodation and other information

The Ocean Eden Bay is an all-inclusive hotel (that is, it includes meals and many activities). Delegates can book accommodation at the hotel at special rates. When you register the confirmation page will include a special booking link for delegates. We have secured a limited number of rooms at the special conference rates which will be available until 28 March 2024 or until the allocation is exhausted, whichever is earlier.

Further information about the conference, including information on travel and visas, is available in the Delegate Information.

Call for Papers

We are now seeking submissions for Conference papers. The Conference theme is “CALC at 40 - common challenges past, present and future”.

Papers should be relatively short, with successful submissions for individual presentations likely to be granted a slot of 15-20 minutes at the conference. Papers could alternatively suggest delivery of workshops or panel sessions.

If you wish to submit a paper, please send a short abstract of up to 250 words, and a short biography of up to 150 words, to message.calc@gmail.com, with the subject line “CALC – Submission for Jamaica Conference”.

The closing date for submissions is Friday 15 March 2024.

General meeting of CALC

As provided in CALC’s constitution, there will also be an ordinary general meeting of CALC at the conference in Jamaica, on 14 May.

Formal notice of the meeting will be given separately, and additional information will be circulated about nominating for positions on the next CALC Council, proposing motions for special resolutions and voting.

A comparative discussion of the legislative puzzle -- As the Australian Law Reform Commission (ALRC) moves forward with its current inquiry into the simplification of corporations and financial services legislation, it is turning its attention to regulatory design and the hierarchy of laws. Relevant questions include: How should the statutory and regulatory framework be designed to support complex areas such as financial services? Where should the law be located to achieve coherence and navigability? If the law needs detail to function, whose job should it be to provide it? Join the ALRC as it hosts a panel of international experts from Hong Kong, New Zealand, Singapore, and the UK to discuss these and related issues.
