The international forum on construction arbitration for young lawyers and construction professionals
YConstruction is a circle of young lawyers and other construction professionals (including engineers, quantity surveyors, delay experts, and project/contract managers) with an interest in international construction arbitration, created to give its members the opportunity:
to discuss issues relevant to international construction arbitration and construction law in an open, friendly, and diverse environment;
to meet young colleagues from civil and common law jurisdictions; and
to develop skills as conference speakers on construction law issues;
to get access to online tutorials (that we call YConstruction Primers) designed for young practitioners on technical topics you always wanted to get a proper introduction to.
