Shri Nitin Gadkari Hon'ble Minister (Road Transport and Highways of India) Chief Guest, 2021

Construction sector in India accounts for about 9 percent of its GDP and has been a major recipient of the FDI and is projected to make India third largest construction globally by 2025. SCL’s efforts in promoting research and dedication in the field of construction law and collaborating between expert lawyers, professors, engineers and arbitrators and all other stakeholders of the construction industry are truly commendable and highly significant.

Justice L. Nageswara Rao, Former Judge, Supreme Court of India
Guest of Honour, 2019

I would first warmly welcome the decision to establish the Society for Construction Law in India, there can be no doubt that India is one of the world’s major consumers for construction. India also has a highly developed legal system and so bringing these two together is logical and timely... SCL India has undoubtedly taken afoot to establish the links with the construction law societies in other countries especially the UK, Singapore, Australia and elsewhere.
