International Construction Law

This course is open for applications. See how to apply here.

International construction law is an area of law which is gaining increasing popularity. Competition is more international than ever and knowledge in this specialized field of law is required throughout all stages of the construction supply chain. Participants in large construction projects comprise employers, contractors, sub-contractors, suppliers, architects, engineers, project managers, financial institutions, etc. These participants frequently come from different jurisdictions. In such cases, the use of domestic construction agreements is often inappropriate, and therefore parties often resort to the use of international standard form construction agreements, such as the FIDIC Conditions of Contract and NEC. Such a choice requires a new approach towards the understanding of construction law which is generally confined to the knowledge of local legislation and standard form domestic contracts applicable in the country where the subject is taught. This course in International Construction Law deals with the legal aspects arising out of the implementation of construction projects which have an international element. By completing this course the participants will have an excellent opportunity to gain a thorough understanding of this specialised area of law and its interaction with commerce in a time of globalization.
