The Society of Construction Law Australia

Welcome

The Society of Construction Law (Australia) is a single national organisation of members, at all stages of their professional career, who share an interest in construction law.  The 16 founding members were drawn from all mainland states as are the current directors.

The Society encourages the active involvement of all of its members and discourse across the broad spectrum of issues relating to construction law, including matters of policy and legislation, "front end" issues, dispute avoidance, and all forms of dispute resolution.

Forthcoming events

Wednesday 22 May 2019

Networking is made up of more than just a string of contacts. You need a plan with a specific focus that will help you pursue the kind of relationships that move you closer to your objectives. There is also no one size fits all approach – everyone has a personal style so therefore you need to design an approach that will work for you.

This seminar will be conducted by Sue-Ella Prodonovich, one of Australia's leading advisors on business development and marketing for professional services.
