Professor of Construction and Engineering Law Issaka Ndekugri will examine trends in the resolution of such disputes and the market for professional services to resolve issues at the free lecture on Wednesday, 10 March 2010.
The public lecture, titled Dispute Resolution as the Engineering of Settlement, will take place in MC001 at the City Campus at 6pm.
Professor Ndekugri, from the School of Engineering and the Built Environment, said: “Disputes often arise concerning the quality, duration or cost of the design or execution of construction and engineering projects.
“My lecture will throw some light on the sources and causes of these disputes. I will look at the turf wars between engineers and other members of the built environment professions and construction lawyers in relation to the provision of dispute resolution services in roles such as arbitrators, adjudicators and mediators.”
The 13th public lecture series is open to all and aims to showcase University research on a wide range of subjects.
Professor Ndekugri joined the University of Wolverhampton’s School of Engineering and the Built Environment in 1991.
