What is Adjudication?

Let's have a re-cap. Back in March, I told you about 12 year old Adjudication. In April and May, I had a look at watching for disputes and getting an adjudication underway. In June, we also looked at different ways of getting the right adjudicator for your adjudication. This month: it's all about what an adjudication really is.

And in that time, and in the more than 250 times having been the adjudicator, I have seen it change, settle down, mature. Even the lawyers admit that it's working.
