Publisher Comments:

Principles and Practices of Construction Law presents the most common areas of law encountered in the construction industry in an easy-to-read format. Geared to those not yet studying law, the legal concepts are simplified and presented in a basic and simple format that is understandable, practical and devoid of excessive legal detail that can be overwhelming. The book is designed to build readers' ability to think critically, solve legal problems and write comprehensible solutions to claims and issues arising in the construction process. The volume provides an introduction to the legal system and the maxims of law, and addresses applying and using the law, logic, preparing legal arguments and briefing cases, law, ethics, and morality, relationships among the parties on the project, bidding, specification and plans, delays, and acceleration, differing, and unforeseen site conditions, warranties, termination of the contract and contract damages, torts, joint liability and indemnity and dispute resolution. For construction industry professionals interested in a basic understanding of important legal concepts.

Synopsis:

Principles and Practices of Construction Law was written for students and managers in the fields of architecture, engineering, and construction management. This comprehensive text covers all aspects of law that affect a construction project from beginning to end. In addition, there are background chapters on logic and the law, applying and using the law, and introduction to the legal system. Geared toward non-lawyers, this text is intended to help construction managers avoid legal entanglements on the job. Some of the key features include:
  • Discussion of important issues, trends, and current events in the construction industry.
  • Emphasis in several chapters on the development of legal thinking and writing skills.
  • End-of-chapter problems help students and managers develop necessary skills in critical analysis and problem solving.
