    2021 Construction Law Virtual Seminar

    The COVID-19 global pandemic wreaked havoc on our world in 2020, and unfortunately the construction industry was not immune: work stoppages and delays, physical distancing, and supply chain disruptions are merely a few of the challenges faced by the industry. As COVID-19 lingers into 2021, it will almost certainly have significant implications for building design, and pandemic-related insurance claims will be litigated for some time. These disruptions have forced industry stakeholders to immediately confront these issues and to anticipate similar issues that could arise in the future.

    This program will address how the industry has reacted to the pandemic, discuss where it is going, and inform attendees about "The Construction Industry in the Post-Pandemic World: Getting Back to Work." All attendees – construction professionals, attorneys, and insurance professionals – will benefit from the seminar.

    Attendees will be able to earn up to 7 CLE credits.

    The registration rate is $150 for DRI members and $250 for non-members.
