Contracts and Bond Forms Workshop

Oct. 23-24 in Dallas, TX.

This intensive 1 1/2-day course, developed in collaboration with the law firm of Smith, Currie & Hancock LLP, covers key contract provisions that affect the scope of the liabilities on the project bonds (payment and performance). A team of experts provides participants with checklists and examples of actual contract provisions to illustrate issues, risks and obligations. At the end, each participant will have a heightened sense of risk awareness and the skills to identify, analyze and mitigate those risks.

In addition to the class notebooks, which will be provided to each student at the start of the workshop, the instructors have made additional materials available to students:
