The Blue Standard Approach to Adjudication
Speaker - Tony Bingham
Venue - Birmingham Chamber of Commerce and Industry
An evening talk and discussion, including buffet.
As the relationship between the courts and the adjudication process has become more defined both Adjudicator’s and users of adjudication have to take stock of the impact the courts have on the process and their practice. Tony Bingham, in a thought provoking paper, has clearly set out his view of the practical implications for both adjudicators and parties. His 'Blue Standard approach' suggests that adjudication has suffered a sea change since its inception. This is a controversial subject but one of considerable importance for those who act as adjudicators or use adjudication. The event will start at 6.15 pm. A buffet will precede the talk which will start at 7.00 pm. A cash bar will be available.

The Blue Standard Approach to Adjudication
Open Forum on the Latham Review
Venue - Offices of Dundas & Wilson, 191 West George Street, Glasgow
In his March Budget Statement the Chancellor, Gordon Brown, announced a review of the workings of the 1996 Act. Thereafter, Nigel Griffiths, the Construction Minister, announced that Sir Michael Latham would be conducting the review of Part II of the 1996 Act. In order to stimulate submissions to Sir Michael on what, if anything, should be changed in the statutory scheme, the Scottish Branch will hold an Open Forum to allow everyone the opportunity to air their views. While we may not all be able to agree on what needs to be changed or the extent of it, views may be influenced by hearing about the experiences and views of others.
As there are a limited number of places available please note that places will be allocated on a 'first come first served' basis.

"Adjudication, the Judicial Perspective". His Honour Judge Raynor QC has kindly agreed to talk to the Society about the judiciary's view of adjudication and how it is working.

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.
