This course equips practitioners to act for parties in statutory adjudication of construction disputes and considers the implications of the 2013 Act that came into effect last year.

- Consider enforcement issues concerning adjudicator’s decisions.
- Addresse the implications of statutory adjudication for solicitor’s practice.

I want to congratulate the Law Society for the excellent manner in which they presented and debated the proposed Construction Contracts Act. It was very interested, with great presenters and guest speakers. On completion felt fully informed on the subject which will be very beneficial for our business.

I found this course to be an outstanding course. I had studied adjudication in UK and this was the ideal course for me to refresh my knowledge, and to clarify the interface of the Construction Contracts Act 2013 and the Irish Constitution. It was very well managed over 3 separate weekends and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Very good course content and run by very experienced practitioners. Highly recommended.
