The Steel Joist Institute (SJI) announced its final webinar of the year “Ethics, Laws and Regulations by Gordon Rees Scully Mansukhani,” which will take place on Tuesday, December 18 from 3:00-4:45 p.m. EST, followed by a 15-minute Q&A session.
Gordon & Rees' Construction Group consists of more than 80 lawyers across the U.S. who focus their practice on the comprehensive range of legal service required by all participants in the construction industry. The strength of the construction practice builds on the employees’ depth of knowledge of the legal, technical, regulatory and business considerations specific to the construction industry due to their professional training and first-hand experience in related fields such as engineering, construction management, and environmental sciences. Gordon & Rees lawyers also have leadership experience in various construction industry related trade associations, legal advisory committees and government agencies.
This webinar will explore a professional engineer’s ethical and contractual obligations, as well as legal issues that may arise if one fails to act in accordance with those obligations. The presentation will focus on issues pertinent to the steel industry and will feature case studies where an engineer’s ethical or contractual duties were the focus of a legal dispute.
During this course, presenters will cover:
- Ethical duties established in regulations and codes published by various professional societies.
