The Society is pleased to announce the formation of SCL International.
There is now a Society of Construction Law in over 15 countries. Each of these Societies have now come together to build cooperation and collaboration between the Societies.
SCL International has established a website (http://www.sclinternational.org). Members of the Australian Society can apply to be registered on the website by visiting http://www.sclinternational.org/user/register. Before visiting the site you should obtain the registration code. The registration code can be obtained by emailing email@example.com. Once membership has been confirmed you will receive log in details.
Each Society is able to post papers and other material on the international website. The Australian Society will begin publishing material shortly.
Access to papers from the UK Society is now available through the international website rather than through the historical arrangements between the Australian Society and the UK Society.
SCL International will oversee the biennial international conference.
SCL International is keen to be of service to memebrs of the Societies around the world.
The contact points between the Australian Society and SCL International are our Societies Chair, Basil Georgiou, and our two SCL International Liaison Officers, Phillip Greenham and Ian Bailey QC. They can be contacted by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

We draw our members attention to the following external event hosted by Endstate:
Capturing innovation in the Tender Process – an Endstate hypothetical
Join Endstate and a panel of experts as they explore this topical issue through the scenario - Bondi Island Airport Gets Go-Ahead.
Through the hypothetical, our panel will explore the challenges for capturing innovation in the tender process so that innovative ideas can be assessed objectively, fairly and competitively. Our intention is to investigate how these challenges can be resolved using a simulated scenario and a panel of experts - we also expect the audience to be active participants.
Come and meet our VIP guest panellist The Hon Nick Greiner AC, former Premier and Treasurer (1988 – 1992); with well-known TV personality James O’Loghlin host of the ABC program ‘The New Inventors’ as the Moderator.
