Learn about practical applications of ADR from an experienced legal practitioner and adjudicator.

  • the process of adjudication under the NSW Building and Construction Industry Security of Payment Act 1999;
  • opportunities for Expert Determination, particularly concerning disputes primarily of a technical nature; and
  • discussion of the merits of the various forms of ADR.

This seminar is for ADR and legal practitioners wanting to know more about these dispute resolution processes, and for engineers, builders, surveyors, lawyers and architects who could benefit from understanding ADR processes which may avoid, or limit the extent of, litigation.
