ABA Forum on Construction Law Annual Meeting.

It’s official, I am attending the annual meeting of the American Bar Association Forum on the Construction Industry in Dana Point, California.  The theme of the meeting is the future of construction law and practice.  The conference is April 25 through the 27th.  Some of the topics are:

  • The legal issues arising from on-site construction technologies
  • Preference programs in public projects:  Will this trend continue
  • The Future of construction insurance and bonding
  • The construction lawyer’s technology toolbox
  • Legal services arising from new project procurement and project management technologies
  • The law of the future — workforce issues
  • Forecasting change in Construction Law Practice
  • Globalization of construction dispute resolution
  • Preserving, finding and presenting construction project data at trial

There are 12 break out sections for various areas of specialization.  If you’ll be attending from Alaska, I’d like to hear from you.  If you are interested in me providing a report on my return to your business or group, I would be interested in talking about it before I attend.  The full agenda can be found here.
