A new paper by Philip L. Bruner entitled "Rapid Resolution ADR" is available to download.

The Society is pleased to welcome the following new members: Gwyn Owen, Philip Fidler, Frances Kirkham, Simon Tolson, Max Wieliczko, Rosemary Jackson QC, Adrian Hughes QC, Roger ter Haar QC, Nick Henchie, David Bateson and Stuart Kennedy.

The Society held its Annual Conference at the Geroge Hotel, Hathersage, Derbyshire, over the weekend 14-15 May, 2005.

The Government has announced that it has appointed Sir Michael Latham to review the workings of the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996 following representations from various trade bodies in the Industry. More details can be found on the DTI website. A number of members of the Society are on the Adjudication Panels of the bodies listed in the Press Announcement as having been contracted by Sir Michael. The consultation period is rumoured as being very short.

The Review Body has been asked by the Committee of the Society to draft a supplementary procedure to reflect the lessons of adjudication whilst allowing for a more detailed consideration of the evidence than is possible in 28 days. The principal initial suggestions include a time limit of perhaps three months, or 100 days, within which the Award must be produced which can only be amended by the agreement of both parties.

We regret to record the death on 7th December of Brian Eggleston, one of our long-standing members. For an obituary, click here.
