James P. Connolly's Construction Law provides readers with an introduction to the main legal issues concerning the most commonly used construction contracts in Scotland. Construction law touches upon wide-ranging fields of law, not just the traditional law of obligations, and is remarkable for the complexity of legal issues that it generates.

Written in a highly practical style, this book is the first in modern times to explore the wealth of Scots law that has developed on key concepts, whilst also having regard to English texts. The book provides a critical analysis of JCT 80 and Scottish building contracts, presented clause by clause and with detailed reference to case law.

It also examines the legislative changes affecting construction contracts under the Housing Grants, Construction and Regeneration Act 1996, and proposals for reform.
