Working to promote for the public benefit education, study and research in the field of construction law


Since its foundation in 1983, the Society of Construction Law has worked to promote for the public benefit education, study and research in the field of construction law and related subjects (including adr, arbitration and adjudication), both in the UK and overseas.

The Society now has 2488 members from all sectors of the construction industry. It is run by a Council of 20 elected members.

The Society holds frequent meetings and other events in London and around the country.

The Society welcomes new members, both 'full' members and overseas members. Read more about the different types and how the benefits compare, and how to apply.

We have regional coordinators in many parts of UK & Eire, and contacts with SCL Societies all over the world.

Looking for a case? Take advantage of our many useful links, covering case law as well as the Construction Act, industry bodies and much more. We also have a database of construction law courses.

For those inspired by Chris Froome’s success this year, Stuart Wilks of Hill International and Chulu Kamalondo of TfL / Crossrail have joined forces to set up the first (to the best of our knowledge), construction and law cycling club. The first ride will be on 4th October, starting in North East London around 9am, the aim is to ride a few times a year, a few hours on a weekend morning at different locations. Open to all - if you’d like to join them, contact Stuart: or 020 7618 1200.
