Advisory Panel on Legal Affairs

The Advisory Panel keeps the field of legal affairs under constant review, and can respond to any matter of interest to ICE and its members.

The panel considers matters referred to it by ICE staff and members. However, it does not initiate action on any matter which has not been referred to it first. As well as this, the panel is responsible for producing ICE's Legal Notes.

What are we working on?

The panel has a reactive brief, working to provide up to date information on legal developments that may affect the interests of ICE and our members. The panel provides expert council and regularly drafts legal notes that provide guidance to our members and ensure that ICE is aware of the legal framework in which civil engineers practice in the UK.
