LAW 944 - Construction Law

Construction projects, and related disputes, are often highly complex matters that require construction lawyers to have both specialized knowledge of the law and practical understanding of industry practices.

Topics of study include the construction participants; project administration; project design, scheduling, pricing, and performance; default and termination; dispute resolution; and detailed examination of common construction documents, including owner-designer agreements, owner-contractor agreements, subcontractor and supplier agreements, change orders, surety bonds, and insurance policies. Meets the planning and drafting requirement.
