CHANGE IN DELIVERY:

2015 NC/SC JOINT CONSTRUCTION LAW CONFERENCE

#401CLM

“This was the best joint

construction law program

I have attended.”

“Excellent as always.”

Attendees,

Constructing the Trial of a

Construction Defect Case: Building to a Verdict

(2013 North Carolina/South Carolina Joint

Construction Law Program)

ABOUT | Every two years, the Construction Law Sections of the North Carolina Bar Association and the South Carolina Bar meet to discuss legal issues of common significance. This year’s program includes an impressive faculty line-up and addresses numerous topics of interest to construction lawyers in the Carolinas.

The period between 2008 and 2015 has been among the toughest the construction industry in the United States has ever faced. From a peak of almost $500 billion in revenue in 2008, nonresidential construction fell to a low of less than $350 billion in just two years and has improved only marginally since then. As a result, delivery of services in the construction industry is changing, influenced by, among other things: a push toward new infrastructure projects for job creation; alternative energy and green manufacturing; technological innovation; further consolidation of design and construction services and public private partnerships.

This program focuses on several of the major trends in the construction industry to help participants better understand the changes in delivery and their impacts on project finance, construction contracting, claims management and litigation. TUITION |For more information and/or to register, visit

ABOUT |“Lawyers are not very good at retiring.”

This statement gives rise to an intriguing in-depth program studying issues related to retirement planning, normal aging and cognitive impairment. Lawyers are practicing longer because we are living longer. Gone are the days where one could assume that death and retirement go hand in hand. This program is designed to explore challenges being faced in all professions, the impact of cognitive impairment and of normal aging on lawyers’ competency and to challenge lawyers to prepare for and look forward to life in retirement.
