Since its first offering in 2000, Construction Law has been the core overview subject within this specialist legal area. The subject covers key issues in construction contracting, from the ‘front-end’ issues of formation and delivery method selection through to ‘back-end’ issues of default and termination. Particular attention is given to the construction-specific contracting issues of time, quality, payment and variations. Students study and analyse critically key construction law cases and legislation.
The lecturers, John Sharkey AM and David Bennett QC, bring a combined practising experience to the classroom that spans decades. This experience, combined with their extensive writing and teaching in construction law, ensures that students have the best possible opportunity to gain a detailed understanding of the curriculum.
This subject will provide an introduction to construction contracting, including standard forms and terms.
Principal topics will include:
