CPD 02 March 2021
The 9th in our series of one hour CPD Events for Adjudicators will be held on 2 March 2021 commencing at 5:15pm sharp. The session addresses Interpreting Contracts and the Law of Contract. Adjudicators in all jurisdictions are confronted with contracts of all shapes and sizes, simple and complex, customary to bizarre. The existence of a construction contract to which the BIF applies is not only an essential requirement for a valid Decision, section 88 requires the Adjudicator to consider the provisions of the relevant construction contract. This session is directed to Adjudicators operating under the Building Industry Fairness (Security of Payment) Act 2017. The Presentation and Q&A will be led by Noel Jensen, Partner in leading law firm Jensen and Co Lawyers, Toowoomba. Noel has more than 30 years of legal experience and is a Level 2 Adjudicator. Noel established Jensen & Co Lawyers in 1993 and for more than two decades has developed a reputation as a leader in commercial and construction law. Noel is a Board Member of the Legal Practitioners Admissions Board, a Member of the Queensland Law Society Construction and Infrastructure Committee, and a Board Member of Tennis Queensland. Noel is not only familiar with contests in courts of law – his achievements include playing at Roland Garros in the French Open.
