The programme will assist engineers in gaining an understanding of the fundamental legal issues they need to be aware of from letter of appointment to letter of claim.
This course aims to provide engineers with a practical insight into the current trends in engineering litigation in Ireland and the legal basics they need to be aware of.
This course will allow participants to:
In the morning we will go through the legal basics for an engineer. We will then look at some of the recent judgments from both the Irish and the Technology and Construction Courts that highlight the courts’ views and findings on some of the recurring issues that face the engineer when bringing or defending a claim.
We will continue this discussion in the afternoon, concluding with some typical practical claim scenarios where we can place what we have discussed into context.
Any engineer who requires a practical understanding of the basics of Irish law.
Dispute resolution and dealing with claims is a fact of life for many engineers. This course aims to make participants feel more comfortable when endeavouring to deal with legal issues.
