Oregon State Bar
Welcome to the Oregon State Bar Construction Section website.
"Construction Law" is a broad brush description of the intersection of multiple disciplines that tend to apply to the construction industry, its customers and the public at large involving the construction, renovation or repair of buildings and related improvements. "Construction law," as an area of legal specialization, may include (but is not limited to) construction contracts, construction delivery methods, contractor licensure and regulation, building codes, state and federal public procurement law, state and federal administrative law, suretyship, insurance coverage, payment and collection claims, construction defect litigation, appropriate dispute resolution and bankruptcy.
The Oregon State Bar Construction Section seeks to advance the practice of construction law in Oregon by regularly publishing newsletters and by providing CLE opportunities to attorneys and industry professionals interested in various topics involving construction law.
