Many of us in Pierce Atwood’s Construction Law team are active members of the ABA Forum on Construction Law. The Forum provides excellent business development, networking, and educational opportunities for its 5,000+ members. If you want to learn more, please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I wanted to highlight one unique program that is happening at the end of this month. In my 10+ year history with the Forum, this opportunity has not arisen for attorneys interested in learning about or developing a practice in construction law. On September 30th and October 1, the Forum is offering the following two programs in six locations (Boston, Chicago, Denver, Los Angeles, Nashville, Seattle) throughout the country and on a virtual basis:
- Fundamentals of Construction Law – core concepts of the practice of construction law including topics on bidding, scheduling, differing site conditions, changes, termination, insurance, bonding, payment, and dispute resolution.
- Sticks & Bricks – construction overview from basic engineering concepts, site work, steel, roofing, masonry, curtain wall, MEP/HVAC
This is an excellent opportunity for in-house attorneys, risk managers, project executives, or attorneys looking to develop a practice in construction law.
