The Construction Litigation Committee strives to bring together litigators who primarily practice construction law. The committee sponsors programs on various topics at the Annual Meetings of the American Bar Association, the Section of Litigation, and the ABA Forum on the Construction Industry. One of the Section of Litigation’s strongest committees, our membership brings together more than 2,100 construction litigators from diverse backgrounds, levels of experience, practices, and geographical areas. The committee offers its members varied opportunities to participate in committee activities ranging from opportunities to simply attend and network at its programs to the ability to substantively participate by publishing articles for the committee newsletter, contributing web content such as News and Development and Sound Advice, speaking opportunities, and leadership roles as active subcommittee members and chairs. It is our goal to provide our members with valuable content, benefits, and mentoring that will support all aspects of professional growth and development at every stage of their careers.

Message from the Chairs

We are looking forward to a great year for the Construction Litigation Committee.  Each month we will focus on a different theme and will be delivering content related to that theme.  You can expect to see topics such asethics, cybersecurity, diversity & inclusion, alternative dispute resolution, public private partnerships, affordable housing, damages, defects, sustainability, business development and other topics throughout the year.  

That content will be delivered in the form of practice points, newsletter articles, Sound Advice, roundtable discussions, webinars, and regional events.

While we already have some great content planned, we are always looking for more.  If you have a content idea you would like to discuss or contribute, please reach out to the Editor listed on this page. (Publication of content is not guaranteed and there are requirements/limitations).  If you have questions about the committee please reach out to one of us.
