Her Honour Frances Kirkham CBE will be speaking at this global thought leadership conference, focused on ‘How to improve affordability and accessibility to construction dispute resolution’ .
Taking place virtually on 12th and 13th September, the conference is hosted by the International Code Council (ICC) and the International Building Quality Centre (IBQC) along with a co-sponsorship from The New Zealand Society of Construction Law. Over the two days, select speakers will be addressing the IBQC – Good Practice Guidelines for the Development of Construction Dispute Resolution Tribunals and Decision-Making Institutions that were compiled by a multinational IBQC coalition of senior jurists. The guidelines are curated to provide insights into ways by which dispute resolution costs can be reduced and dispute resolution processes can be expedited to improve outcomes for property owners, government (as a large property owner) and the building industry.
Her Honour Frances Kirkham will be speaking on 13th September on ‘Challenges Facing Arbitration and Ideas on How to Make Arbitration More Accessible.’
