Dear Member,

Event Name: Dispute Resolution and the role of the Expert Witness 

Nature of the CPD Event: Lecture and presentation
 
Course overview: 
Prevention of disputes is one of the most important processes that determine the performance of a construction project and it depends highly on a sound understanding of dispute causation. It is therefore essential that the dispute resolution system for projects allows for appropriate recourse to disputes for all parties to a contract. The means of resolving construction disputes traditionally have been through arbitration or litigation, yet in recent years both procedures have fallen in disrepute, particularly in terms of their costs, delay, procedural complexity and adversarial approach. 

The effect of dissatisfaction with the traditional systems of dispute resolution has therefore led to interest in alternative dispute resolution (ADR) in its advantages in terms of costs, speed and flexibility.   This one-day course comprises of five parts, each one contributing to an understanding of the aspects of the construction sector that are impacted by the regular occurrence of disputes, an overview of the various existing dispute resolution options that are available, how the various standard forms of contract, endorsed by the Construction Industry Development Board (CIDB), provide for ADR mechanisms in their contracts, and finally the role of the expert witness in ADR or court of law. The course content includes working through five scenarios and a questionnaire to establish one’s readiness to act as an expert witness.
