This article provides the first in-depth scholarly examination of the substantive procedural reforms recently implemented in the Technology, Engineering and Construction List (‘TEC List’) of the Supreme Court of Victoria. The authors determine whether the rules governing construction litigation in Victoria represent world’s best practice by comparing them with the rules and procedures of the United Kingdom, which are generally regarded as world leading. The conclusion reached is that while the new rules in the TEC List are a step in the right direction, there is still room for significant improvement in this area.
