Learn more about the adjudication process and develop your ADR skills.
This is an intensive and interactive all-day workshop. Participants will be divided into diverse disciplinary groups, each under the guidance of a Leader. Groups will be provided with written case examples to study and discuss on issues that can occur at each stage of adjudication proceedings. Each group will then formulate a majority opinion and nominate in turn a spokesperson to present that view. Discussion of dissenting views will also be encouraged! The workshop presenter, Cliff Wakefield, is a very experienced Chartered Quantity Surveyor, Chartered Arbitrator and practicing adjudicator specialising in advising and representing clients in construction and commercial disputes processes.
