Developed for the construction industry and legal professionals, Osgoode Hall Law School is once again offering its Certificate in Construction Law. The program includes five days of targeted and practical learning about crucial construction law concepts, from contract formation to dispute resolution.

Aimed at anyone working in the construction industry, the certificate is particularly well-suited for owners, developers, general contractors, project managers, contract managers, architects, engineers, and operations and facilities professionals.

The instructors highlight real-world situations as they help students develop a solid understanding of the core legal issues impacting construction projects to equip them with skills to help minimize exposure to potentially costly risk.

“Through leading expert faculty over five full program days, the Osgoode Certificate in Construction Law delivers a top-to-bottom consideration of the legal context in which construction happens,” says Jason Annibale of McMillan LLP, one of the program directors for the course.

“Attendees leave the program with a deeper understanding of project delivery methods, the contractual relationships within the construction pyramid, bidding and tendering, risk allocation, claims and dispute resolution, and other areas of law touching the construction process, including environmental law, restructuring, insurance and bonding, and occupational health and safety,” he adds.

The next dates for the program start in September. For more information about the certificate, click here.
