Paralegals Role in Construction Law and Drafting Basics

Gain an understanding of common construction document forms and terminology used in construction disputes.

Many paralegals are asked to provide basic services to attorneys and clients in connection with construction contracts and disputes. Unless the paralegal is familiar with industry contract forms and usual and customary solutions to problems, valuable time will be lost. This topic will inform and empower paralegals by providing them with background, biases, strengths, and weakness of the common forms of construction documents; an understanding of common terminology in construction disputes; issue-spotting skills common to these disputes; and familiarity of the basic tools available to assist attorneys and clients.
