There are a wide and varied number of paths that can be taken in pursuit of a career construction law.  Our panel of three professionals will discuss each of their different experiences in construction law, and share some tips and tricks about how they got where they are today.

Please join us to hear from our three esteemed panellists on each of their different experiences and career paths:
