6 Dec 2022: Construction law – an introduction for aspiring barristers

21st Jul 2022

Date

Time
5:30 am UK

Location
Virtual (Zoom)

Applicants often ask us if they can make an application to Atkin Chambers even though they have not done any “construction law” and don’t have any “construction experience”.

The aim of this seminar is to show potential applicants that they probably have done some construction law and only need to look at recent cases on their university or GDL reading lists to see that construction barristers, and in particular members of Atkin Chambers, debate some of the most fundamental principles of private law in the appellate courts.

Members of Chambers will summarise four recent construction cases and consider what about them made them typical of a construction case. Attendees will have the opportunity to ask why the Court reached the decision it did, what it is like to work on construction cases in practice as opposed to in an academic environment, and any other questions they have about the cases or life at the commercial/construction bar.

The event will start at 5.30pm and finish by 7pm.
