The ABA Forum on the Construction Industry would like to invite interested law students or alumni to attend the Forum’s Fall Meeting in Boston, “Construction Counseling, Pulling Together For a Winning Strategy.”

This is one of three national programs put on by the Forum per year and will attract 300 to 400 construction attorneys from around the country. The 2012 Boston program has been designed from the outset to deal with issues of interest to in house and outside counsel and will provide any law student an excellent glimpse of “Real World” industry CLE at a very high level. The program will feature segments on such cutting edge topics as “Saying No to the CEO,” which will take on having those difficult conversations between attorney and client, and how to turn them into relationship-building experiences. Other sessions deal with topics such as hiring and firing outside counsel, working across state lines, insurance and surety products for innovative contract methods, avoiding false claims exposure, cross-border disputes, and a look at where construction dollars are going now from two of the industry’s leading economists.

The program features in-house speakers from both larger and smaller industry participants. The Forum has earned a reputation for presenting the highest quality construction law CLE programs anywhere, and combining them with unsurpassed networking opportunities in outstanding venues. Our welcome reception in Boston will be at the nearby Boston Museum of Fine Arts, and the program itself will take place in Sheraton Boston Hotel -- in the center of Back Bay, one of the most lively and interesting urban areas in the country. Please join us in Boston for an outstanding program attuned to real world construction law and industry issues in a outstanding New England setting.

The registration fee is substantially discounted for law students ($50.00 if booked by “early bird” September 17 date – or less than 10% of the general attendance rate). The program brochure with full details on the program and registration information can be found at the attached link.
