A Welcome from the Chairman

“Since its foundation in 2013, the CBA has encouraged the study of construction law by members of the Irish legal profession, barristers and solicitors. Everything in construction ultimately turns on issues of law, from the highly detailed content and structure of construction contracts to the legal regulation of the industry through the Building Control Acts to the litigation of construction disputes both in respect of claims and defects. Construction law is now recognised as a specialised area of law requiring skill and experience. Early recourse to legal professionals is the best guarantee to construction employers and companies that their interests will be properly protected and vindicated. Members of the CBA take pride in constantly honing their skills. We on the Committee of the CBA hope that this website will keep members up to date on recent developments, and the Codex has become a resource without equal for Irish lawyers.

If you are not already a member, we would encourage you to join with many of your colleagues who are already enjoying the benefits of CBA membership.”

John Trainor S.C.
