Introduction by Chantal-Aimée Doerries KC and Professor Doug Jones AO 

This year, we begin the fi rst part of the International Construction Law Review for 2024 with further celebration of its 40th anniversary. We commemorate this journal’s contribution to innovation in construction law, construction
practice and dispute resolution as well as celebrate the diversity of our authors in contributing to these discussions. In line with this theme, Part 1 explores innovation for a modern construction lawyer in key areas of concern such as acceleration claims, sustainable construction and the management of megaprojects. The innovative solutions recommended by our authors come in the form of introducing certain contractual provisions, the application and timing of dispute resolution procedures as well as proposed changes to regulations. This collection also focuses on providing guidance and clarifying the practical implications of certain dispute resolution frameworks such as arbitral proceedings under FIDIC.

In commemoration of The International Construction Law Review’s anniversary, forthcoming parts of this year’s volume will turn a reflective eye upon publications from our very first volume. These publications will be republished alongside additional commentary authored by subject matter experts. The additional commentary will include an update in legal and practical developments since the article was first published and a reflection upon the significance of the article in its findings.
