While there, I have the pleasure of talking with friends (among them Tim Hughes aka @vaconstruction and main force behind the Virginia Real Estate Land Use and Construction Law Blog) and others. This networking opportunity is a great way to meet other construction attorneys, discuss cases, and make new friends. Such opportunities make a great “real world” addition to Web 2.0 efforts.
Of course, the topics are great also. This year, they ranged from green building, to mechanic’s liens, bankruptcy and recent developments in construction law. I was happy to see that many of the cases that my friend Tom Wolfe of LeClairRyan cited have been discussed in various places on this blog.
While it is gratifying to find out that someone else finds these developments in construction law important, I enjoy the opportunity to hear from other lawyers with slightly different specialties. Learning is a good thing and I look forward to next year’s seminar.
As always, I encourage your comments below. Also, please subscribe to keep up with the latest Construction Law Musings.
