Our Events

Unless marked otherwise, the meetings are free to members and their guests.

For some events, only SCL members are permitted to register - this is stated with the event. Please contact our administrative office with any queries.

If you are going to pay for an event, you will need to be logged in before going through checkout. If you do not have an account on this website, you can create one.

The Society of Construction Law aims to ensure that people have equal access to our events.  If you need alternative formats or other reasonable adjustments, please contact one of the SCL Administrators (Jill Ward or Frances Whitehead) with your request so that arrangements, where possible, can be made.  Please note that any arrangements will have to depend on the nature of the venue and what can be done.
