Welcome to the Construction Bar Association of Ireland Website

The Construction Bar Association of Ireland (CBA), founded on the 23rd of April 2013, is a specialist association of Irish lawyers who practise in or have an interest in construction law and the resolution of disputes in the sector. The CBA seeks to advance the state of knowledge of Irish construction law through its regular Technical Talks Programme, the CBA Construction Law Periodical, the Annual CBA Construction Law Conference and ad hoc briefings to Members on hot topics as they arise during the legal year.

The CBA acts as a vibrant hub for Irish lawyers who advise upon or act in construction law related matters to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience. Membership of the Association is open to both Barristers and Solicitors; the relevant Application Forms can be downloaded from the Members Section.
