International Construction Law
The construction industry is by far one of the largest industries worldwide. Day-to-day construction issues are changing and require greater legal understanding. It has become imperative for professionals such as lawyers, architects and engineers in the industry to obtain specialised legal education to deal with increasing legal issues.
For example, even before the project development and contract award phase, legal implications need to be considered together with economic and technical aspects. Understanding the complex legal framework is indispensable when negotiating contracts with participants in a construction project. Thus contractors, engineers and suppliers who were traditionally not involved in legal matters are now expected to deal with contracts drafting, negotiation and implementation.
From the first briefing with the design team until the completion of the construction project, numerous legal aspects must be considered, including design obligations of parties, completion, claims management and dispute resolution. Legal matters become particularly complicated in construction projects when participants are from different countries as the contractual relationships may be subject to differing legal systems. These are but a few examples of the complexities which professionals will most likely have to manage, hence the need for a specialised programme on international construction law bringing practice and theory together in the international construction industry.
