8:15 AM - 5:00 PM ET
6.25 General CLE Credit Hours
Taught by leading industry professionals in each location, this one-of-a-kind program provides a unique opportunity for both new and seasoned construction lawyers, as well as other construction industry participants, to gain a fundamental understanding of the key engineering and construction issues that govern major civil works projects or “horizontal” construction. The range of projects covered includes transportation (highways, bridges and railroads), water and wastewater (treatment, drainage and runoff), environmental and solid waste (hazardous waste investigation and remediation, and landfills), power (electrical generation) and geotechnical (site investigation and testing). The program format is modeled on the Forum’s very popular “Sticks and Bricks” program, which focuses on building technologies for “vertical” construction.
Designed to be both affordable and convenient, the Infrastructure program provides an exceptional training opportunity for law firms and other construction industry professionals and businesses. Those new to infrastructure and horizontal construction will acquire the knowledge necessary to comprehend complex technical concepts, identify and anticipate legal risks, counsel their clients more competently, and deliver greater value when engaged on civil projects. The Infrastructure program is a vital educational credential for construction lawyers whose practice includes such projects, and who need to understand the key considerations that drive civil projects.
