1.0 Hours Formal CPDUse 6 Coins
Jurisdiction is a cornerstone of these two, popular means of dispute resolution. Failure to understand the sources, bounds and common stumbling blocks of jurisdiction can undermine any tribunal decision or award. This video will provide you with an overview of these key areas and the relevant UK legislation.
This one-hour video course will guide you through the complex area of the jurisdiction of a person(s) appointed as adjudicator or arbitrator in a construction dispute. In either of these roles, it is vital to be aware of the relevant legislative documents, and the most frequent jurisdictional issues that arise. So, if you are looking to be involved in tribunals as either of these roles, or wish to better understand this common issue raised in both types of alternative dispute resolution, this course is for you.
We will look into the context of non-court dispute resolution and the enforceability of decisions with respect to the court. We will also outline the sources and bounds of jurisdiction, and finally address common issues and jurisdictional failure. This will help prevent decisions or awards which you are involved in making, from being undermined by jurisdictional failures.
Our presenter is Mark Entwistle FRICS, whose national and international roles as a chartered quantity surveyor, lawyer, arbitrator, adjudicator, dispute board member and mediator in a career spanning over 30 years, provides him with a unique depth of knowledge and experience to bring to the subject of conflicts and disputes.
