13 July 2021
The fourth in our 2021/2022 series of one hour CPD Events for Adjudicators will be held on 13 July 2021 commencing at 5:15pm sharp. The session will be ‘Section 84(2)(a)(ii) – Frivolous or Vexatious Adjudication Applications’. Section 84(2)(a)(ii) requires adjudicators to decide whether the adjudication application is frivolous or vexatious. This CPD session will use an interactive format to explore key principles to guide adjudicators when determining whether an adjudication application is frivolous or vexatious. A number of scenarios will be presented for discussion to ensure that the session is practical and interactive. The session will be led by Ben Thomas. Ben Thomas has been a registered adjudicator under the BIFA legislation since 2017. While only fairly new to adjudication, Ben has been in senior leadership roles overseeing international construction projects for many years. In his ‘spare’ time, Ben is currently finishing an LLM degree through the University of New England. Registrations for this event will close at 5:00pm on Monday 12 July 2021.
