The Society of Construction Law has led industry discussions at events and conferences around the world for many years, and for the first time North America will host the International Society of Construction Law Conference from September 26–28.
Join us in Chicago, where global legal and construction experts will explore the ins and outs of the two leading delay and disruption guides, the new loss of productivity standard, and their use.
Leading practitioners will guide us through:
- Differences in contract interpretation
- Dispute resolution and penalty clauses around the world
- Practical management tools for mega projects
- How to embrace uncertainty and think outside the box
- Increasing risk mitigation opportunities for a competitive advantage
- Appreciating the application of technology on projects and in arbitration
This is a unique opportunity to join legal and construction industry professionals in discussing these issues and networking with global leaders in these fields.
The conference will provide an interactive dialogue with live polling questions, opportunities for participation, and working sessions. Connect with peers from North America and around the world.
This conference is proudly hosted by the Society of Construction Law North America, American College of Construction Lawyers, Canadian College of Construction Lawyers, and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
Book rooms at the conference hotel: the beautiful and historic Palmer House has provided a special rate of $249 per night.
