Construction Law Section
The Dallas Bar Association Construction Law Section focuses on a broad range of legal and industry issues that arise in the context of public and private construction projects. We provide an excellent opportunity for continuing education and a forum for discussing and answering questions on construction law issues of all types. The Section hosts luncheons for its members on the first Thursday of every month at The Belo Mansion beginning at noon. Guests are welcome to join us to see what the Section is all about. Through luncheon seminars and its newsletter, the Section aims to keep its members abreast of developments and trends in construction law. The Section actively encourages its members to participate in pro bono projects which involve construction issues.
If you would like to be a guest at our next luncheon, or if you would like information on joining the Section, please contact our Chair, Timothy Matheny, 214.523.5133.
