Déjà Vu All Over Again — Virtually (A Program Celebrating the Release of the 8th Edition of the North Carolina Construction Law Deskbook)

This item is expired.

First published by the Construction Law Section in 1994, the North Carolina Construction Law Deskbook is a vital resource to all Construction Law Section members. Take a sneak peek inside the forthcoming 8th Edition as we trace the evolution of key construction law principles as they have developed through our decisional law.

During this program, a distinguished group of speakers (including editors of the 8th Edition Deskbook) discusses the legal hurdles encountered when pursuing claims for additional compensation and explores the increased utilization of alternative project delivery methods in public sector construction.

Attendees discover how bonding companies investigate, defend and resolve surety claims, and also gain timely insights about jobsite safety and the licensure of construction professionals.
