This course will introduce you to the role of adjudication and its relationship with construction contracts such as the NEC. Case studies and discussion will provide over 67% of the course content. Numbers will be limited to 12 to ensure opportunity for discussion and exchange of views and experiences.
The learning will be achieved primarily by discussion and drawing in of practical experience within the group. The first case study centres upon individual experiences of disagreements / disputes within the delegates.
The learning will continue by referring to key judgments since statutory adjudication was introduced in 1996 with the aim being to help delegates identify good sources of information. The course material will comprise short notes and extracts from key judgments.
A key message towards the end of the course will be about the importance/value of understanding the boundaries of one’s own knowledge and experience. This is NOT a one day course to become an Adjudicator but rather an introduction to understand how a dispute may be solved via the Adjudication process if it cannot be resolved within the project team. An understanding of this process has significant value as it is more often than not very much misunderstood.
Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop or iPad to be able to undertake internet searches of key legal information available via the web during case studies.
This is a new course and the ICE is considering developing a 5 day Adjudication course of which this may become “day 1”.
At present this “day 1”entry level course is stand alone.
This course has been peer reviewed by the ICE Disputes Resolution Service.
The course can be taken as a companion course to the ICE Law and Contract Management course which leads to the ICE Law and Contracts Management Examinations.
The course can be taken as a pre-cursor to the ICE Law and Contracts Management course.
