For a long time, the Society of Construction Law has run lectures which have been delivered at the National Liberal Club in London. I have been to many of them, usually listening but sometimes speaking.
And so it will be a happy return to an old haunt when I will be on my hind legs again for the Society in a couple of weeks.
The topic is Claims Outside the Contract from a Common and a Civil Law Perspective; I will be doing the common law half and Chris Seppälä from White & Case in Paris will be doing the civil law half. It will be chaired by Mrs Justice Joanna Smith, who sometimes sits in the TCC.
I like this notion of putting common law and civil law stuff up side by side. Each has things to learn from the other.
