Construction And Surety Law – Every Lawyer’s Guide (2013)


5.5 MCLE Credits, including 0.5 in ethics

This new program presents a comprehensive look at the legal issues involved in construction and surety law – from the drafting of the key contractual language and bond provisions to the litigation of personal injury actions arising from construction site accidents.

Unlike traditional programs covering only the contractual and financial aspects, or only the personal injury practice, this program will bring both areas together and provide practitioners with a “big picture view” of the many crucial and interrelated issues involved in construction law from project inception to completion.

A seasoned panel of speakers will present the basic issues and teach the basic skills, while also delving into complex issues and scenarios, in this program designed to benefit practitioners of all levels of experience. The program will conclude with a discussion of the ethical issues facing attorneys in all aspects of construction and surety law.
