The ACC Docket: Featuring the best of Australian and global member-driven content

As ACC Australia strives to deliver the most appropriate combination of relevant services and timely member communications, we are constantly considering how to best balance the needs of our members across our member communication channels.   
ACC Australia previously produced Australian Corporate Lawyer magazine as a quarterly print publication and more recently as an online publication, as well as providing access to member-driven content via the ACC Docket.  
Linked to the ACC Australia website, the ACC Docket is the voice of the global in-house community. We are delighted that the ACC Docket will now be ACC’s principal channel for timely and relevant member-driven content, replacing the quarterly delivery of content via the online Australian Corporate Lawyer magazine.
