Current issues in adjudication
Innovation and Change in Construction Law
The extent of changes over the last decade is well documented in sector reports such as Latham and Egan. This need for innovation and change has been supported through various forums by the move towards less adversarial relationships and the developments of alternative contractual and dispute resolution approaches.
Some of the leading figures in the industry will provide a helpful review of recent developments in construction law, identifying trends and how they might develop in the future.
Speakers - Professor HH Judge Humphrey Lloyd QC, Paul Darling QC, Fiona Hammond, Peter Hibberd
Venue - Cedar Court Hotel, Wakefield (Junction 39, M1)

How can we improve adjudication?
The talk will look at the adjudication system in the UK and compare it with other
dispute resolution procedures such as the Dispute Resolution Board's prevalent on
major international projects. Is there anything we can learn from these alternatives?
We will also look at interaction between adjudication and mediation, considering the
issues to be aware of when considering mediation and adjudication.
Speaker: Dr Robert Gaitskill QC - Keating Chambers
Are there any common themes developing from the Court of Appeal approach to adjudication?

the Construction Act.
