Why Construction Law
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 specialized 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 contract drafting, negotiation, and implementation.
Hence there is a need for a specialized program on international construction law bringing practice and theory together in the international construction industry.
