1h 2m

Created on July 12, 2021





With exclusive jurisdiction over bid protests and breach of contract claims appealed from the Court of Federal Claims and Boards of Contract Appeals, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit plays a critical role in interpreting government contracts law and resolving disputes between contractors and the U.S. Government. This program will discuss the Federal Circuit's unique role in the judicial system and its approach to government contracts cases. With the benefit of that context, we will review several of the Federal Circuit's most significant and interesting government contracts decisions from recent years, and how they impact government contracts practice in the Federal Circuit and beyond. 

This course will benefit government contracting practitioners across the U.S. and attorneys working with businesses involved in government contracts. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss how the Federal Circuit fits within the rest of the judicial system and its role in shaping government contracts law 
  2. Appreciate the differences between litigating government contracts issues before the Federal Circuit compared to other tribunals, e.g., the Government Accountability Office, Boards of Contract Appeals, and The Court of Federal Claims
  3. Analyze the Federal Circuit's recent, significant government contracts decisions with context for the Federal Circuit's approach to government contracts appeals
