The West Coast Construction Law Symposium will continue the CLSA's exclusive advanced construction law series on Friday, May 20, 2022, at the offices of the venue host Glaser Weil Fink Howard Avchen & Shapiro LLP, in Century City, Los Angeles, California, sponsored by Jensen Hughes.
There are only 12 speaker slots for this event, which is designed to allow for personal interaction and discussion on all of the presentations, and 16 additional slots for contributors/observers. Contributors will participate in the discussions, but will not present a topic of their own. The format is 8 hours, 12 speakers, 30 minutes each, speaking on any construction topic desired that will add to the superior construction law strategies and tactics of WCCLS attendees. Best of all, you select your proposed topic with the only requirement being that it has to be something valuable you have divined about practices relating to construction law, whether transactional or litigation aspects of construction, or more specifically contract preparation, contract negotiations, surety bonding, traditional litigation and ADR, and/or any other facet of construction law applicable to commercial, residential, and energy construction matters nationally and internationally, that is so innovative you would pass it on to your most trusted friends in the legal community. The symposium series will be built around the idea of actual tried and true tactics and strategies so that everyone comes away with a variety of presentations, angles, tools, and devices. Please note that presentation titles, overviews, and speaker biographies are due on or before Friday, May 6, 2022.
In addition to a unique learning experience, you will come away with an impressive credential for your bio, e.g., "Robert A. Jones, Differing Site Conditions, Construction Lawyers Society of America, West Coast Construction Law Symposium, Los Angeles, CA, May 20, 2022."
The WCCLS concept and design will not be similar to typical seminar programs where you can speak and leave. It will be a full day of immersion in dialogue and discussion between you and your peers: construction lawyers with years of experience, successes and verdicts. Fellows will come to exchange tactics and techniques of the highest order. This type symposium only works if everyone is committed for the entire event. This is not a "drive through" or a "speak, greet and go" event. Those who speak early should stay until day's end out of respect for the process and for those who speak later. If your schedule does not allow you to be present the entire day, then perhaps it will for a future CLSA Symposium.
All CLSA Fellows attending the West Coast Construction Law Symposium are required by the venue host to be fully vaccinated and are required to provide proof of vaccination. Fellows are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after completing primary vaccination with a COVID-19 vaccine, with, if applicable, at least the minimum recommended interval between doses. For example, this includes two weeks after a second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, two weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as the Johnson & Johnson vaccine, or two weeks after the second dose of any combination of two doses of different COVID-19 vaccines as part of one primary vaccination series. Masks may be required by the venue host.
There is a $695 registration fee to attend (covering breakfast, lunch, staffing, and post-symposium wine tasting, and hors d’oeuvres networking opportunity). CLE credit will be applied for once the final agenda of speakers has been established. However, given different states’ requirements for CLE credit, the symposium format may not be approved for CLE credit by all states.
If you have any questions, please contact Beth Rich at Beth.Rich@ConstructionSociety.org or 470-303-6005.
We hope that you will make plans to join us for the West Coast Construction Law Symposium.
