Message from the Editor: Law Students and YLD’ers – We Want to Hear from YOU!

Tom Dunn

This is our second edition publishing Construction Law 101 articles.  After change orders, tender letters, and international arbitration, we plan to tackle differing site condition claims and other fundamental topics of construction law.  I encourage all of the Forum’s law student members and young lawyers to read these articles and share their thoughts and questions on Under Construction’s ABA Connect Page ( – search for Under Construction).  Also, attend an upcoming Forum meeting.  We will be in Hollywood, Florida in April and Philadelphia, PA in October.  Attending these meetings are an excellent way to receive top class education but also to create important contacts for your legal career.  Through various initiatives, the Forum on Construction law wants to engage and hear from our future leaders. 

If you are a young lawyer in the Chicago area, attend a complimentary special “Meet to Empower” reception on March 20, 2019 starting at 5:00 P.M. at the American Bar Association, 321 N. Clark, 21st Floor Boardrooms.  There will be an ethics CLE and networking reception.
