The course is described as follows:

“Acting for Clients in Construction Adjudication – Practice and Procedure

The Construction Contracts Act 2013 (the 2013 Act”) provides for statutory adjudication of construction payment disputes and regulates payment practices. Statutory adjudication is very likely to bring about significant change in how construction disputes are dealt with in this country.  Thus is important to solicitors and barristers who practice in this area of law and to other professionals who represent parties in construction disputes.

The purpose of this course, which is intended for solicitors, barristers and professionals who act for parties in construction disputes, is to explain the implications of the Act for payment claims and the conduct of disputes concerning payment claims, provide skills required for prosecuting and defending a case by statutory adjudication, consider enforcement issues concerning adjudicator’s decisions, and address the implications of statutory adjudication for solicitor’s practice. This is so that those who complete the course will be able to act effectively in advising on and conducting statutory adjudication proceedings on behalf of their clients when the Act comes into force.”
