The Society of Construction Law (NZ) are pleased to announce the 2016 New Zealand Society of Construction Law's Essay Prize Competition. 

The Essay Prize Competition is designed to encourage an interest in, and the study of, construction law amongst undergraduate or recently graduated students.

This is the fifth year the SCL New Zealand has run the competition with great success.

The competition is designed to encourage an interest in construction law amongst undergraduate or recently graduated students. Essays are to be a maximum of 5000 words with an emphasis placed on contribution to the study or practice of construction law or to the application of construction law in the industry.

Essays submitted will be judged by a panel to be selected by the SCL Council.
