APPLYING ADJUDICATION AS AN ALTERNATE DISPUTE RESOLUTION FOR CONSTRUCTION DISPUTES IN THE UNITED STATES
MetadataShow full item record
This research will look at the possibility of applying the English system of Adjudication as an alternate dispute resolution technique (ADR) in the United States Construction Industry. I focused on Construction law adjudication in the United Kingdom during my 2010 fall semester in London, and my research continued in the spring semester of 2011 when I returned to Texas A and M and began to focus my study on the American legal system. I am testing the idea that if adjudication were to be implemented into construction contracts in the United States, there would potentially be cost and time saving benefits without deducting from the justice served to the parties. I also attended a Construction Lawyer‟s conference in San Antonio, Texas to have a roundtable discussion with industry leaders about the possibilities and challenges of statutory adjudication. The feedback was promising for future research on the topic and the possibility of legal application. I have also submitted an abstract using this research to the 2011 Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors legal research symposium on law and dispute resolution to be considered for publication in the International Journal of Law in the Built Environment.
