On November 9, 2012, in five convenient locations across the country, the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry will present an all-new program: "Infrastructure: Civil Works Projects for Lawyers."

Taught by leading industry professionals in each location, this one-of-a-kind program provides a unique opportunity for both new and seasoned construction lawyers, as well as other construction industry participants, to gain a fundamental understanding of the key engineering and construction issues that govern major civil works projects or "horizontal" construction. The range of projects covered include transportation (highways, bridges and railroads), water (drinking water treatment, wastewater treatment, drainage and runoff), environmental (hazardous waste investigations and remediations, solid waste and landfills), power (electrical generation, and transmission) and geotechnical (site investigations and testing). The program format is modeled on the Forum’s very popular “Sticks and Bricks” programs, which focus on building technologies or “vertical” construction.

Designed to be both affordable and convenient, the Infrastructure program provides an exceptional training opportunity for law firms and other construction industry businesses. Those new to infrastructure and horizontal construction will gain the understanding to better identify and anticipate issues, speak more knowledgeably, and deliver more value when engaged on civil projects. As such, the Infrastructure program will be a vital educational credential for construction lawyers whose practice includes such projects, and who thus need to understand the key considerations that drive civil projects.

Tuition of only $210 for this full-day program also includes the brand new Forum book, Infrastructure from the Ground Up: Civil Engineering Works for Lawyers (regular member price $144.95), plus lunch and full day seminar.
