Build your knowledge with the Diploma in Construction Law

The increasing complexity of construction law provides for a proliferation of contracts and conflict and dispute resolution mechanisms. The Diploma in Construction Law will provide a comprehensive overview of the specialised discipline of construction law and practice in Ireland.

Beginning on 9 October 2021, the Diploma in Construction Law will take a practical approach to the complex issues that arise from the multiparty nature of the construction process. Participants will be introduced to the standard forms of construction contracts with particular focus on the Public Works and RIAI Contracts. There will be specialised introductory streams for lawyers and non-lawyers and specific modules on the tendering process and construction dispute resolution. Other prominent areas of study will include:

  • The Construction Contracts Act 2013,
  • Allocation of risk between the employer and the contractor,
  • Collateral warranties and bonds, specialists and sub-contractors, and
  • The Building Control (Amendment) Regulations 2014.


Practical training through the use of case studies and workshops will be enhanced by looking at the overall regulation of construction and the role of regulatory authorities, case law, and recent and future developments.

This course would be of interest to Solicitors currently working in the area or those who would be interested in practising in this area, Dispute resolution solicitors and barristers looking to broaden their understanding and construction professionals, including engineers, claims surveyors, and expert witnesses.
