About the Webinar:
In these challenging times, the only constant is change. And so, this is the first ever SCL (Singapore) Annual Construction Law Update to be held as a webinar!
This Annual Update will broaden our traditional geographical focus and serves not only as an update on Singapore construction law. It will also discuss developments in construction law to include any landmark decisions from other jurisdictions that may be particularly relevant to Singapore. To achieve our stated objective, we are delighted to have two eminent construction law practitioners, Ms Jane Evans and Mr Nandakumar Ponniya, as our distinguished speakers.
Webinar participants will be able to watch and listen to (via computer audio, recommended for security reasons, or telephone line) the video presentation and Q&A discussion on their screens, as well as participate in the Q&A discussion by sending in your questions to the moderator via text using the built-in Q&A function.
