Houston Construction Law - Upcoming Events

The Houston Bar Association Construction Law Section has over 300 members focusing on a broad range of legal and industry issues that arise on private and public commercial construction projects and residential construction projects. Considering the wide variety of transactional and litigation issues that can arise for a construction lawyer, the Construction Law Section provides an excellent opportunity for continuing legal education and a forum for discussing and answering questions on construction law issues of all types.

The Construction Law Section hosts luncheons for its members on the third Thursday of the month (September through June) at Brennan’s located at 3300 Smith Street, Houston, Texas 77006 beginning at 11:45 a.m. Guests are always welcome to join us to see what the section is all about. For questions regarding our programming or if you would like information on joining the section, please contact our chair, or the Bar Association at (713) 759-1133.
