Contract law is a key part of the construction industry, and takes up a significant part of any degree course in building or construction. A wide range of practitioner's tomes currently exist but there is a distinct lack of student texts that explain the essentials in a concise and accessible manner. The purpose of this book is to bridge this gap between undergraduates and practitioners and provide a helpful guide to the essentials of construction contract law including: how the law has developed, the reasoning behind the key contract clauses, and how contract law is applied in practice.
JOHN ADRIAANSE is Senior Lecturer in Construction Law at South Bank University,London.
