Without doubt we are living in interesting times. And for those of us whose work collides with the built environment, we are seeing amazing technological progress collide with a socially and climatically changing world with the delivery of ever bigger and bigger projects.
Our times are full of opportunities but we seem to be struggling to take full advantage of these opportunities here in Australia.
The question I explore in this paper is whether we, as lawyers engaged in the built environment, are enabling our clients, and our society and even our planet, to fully realise these opportunities. And, what we could do to improve tomorrow over what we are achieving today.
