SCL International Medal

John Tackaberry QC has been awarded the SCL International Medal at the 2021 9th SCL International Conference in November 2021. The Conference was held in New Zealand, albeit virtually. The medal is awarded at each SCL International Conference to a person who has made a major contribution to construction law internationally. John was instrumental in founding the UK Society of Construction Law in 1983 and was the Society’s first founding president. Nearly 40 years later, John is still very much involved with the Society. The principles under which John established the Society have been adopted by all the international sister organisations in over 20 countries.

The SCL International Medal was first awarded at the 8th International SCL Conference in Chicago in 2018, where the recipient was Sir Vivian Ramsey.
