Part of the ICE manuals series, ICE Manual of Construction Law is the essential legal reference for all construction professionals.

Previously published as the annual ICE construction law handbook, ICE Manual of Construction Law has been thoroughly revised and extended, to deliver practical guidance and a breadth of knowledge that is unrivalled by any other publication.

Written for those without legal training, by acknowledged experts from within the construction industry and specialist construction law firms, the most important construction law issues are addressed: from planning, financing and procurement, through operational issues and general law, to claims and dispute resolution.

The ICE Manual of Construction Law:-
  • Approaches the legal issues as they would arise on a typical project
  • Provides a working understanding of the legal principles behind construction practice
  • Covers current UK and European legislation
  • Considers the practical and commercial implications of case law and legislation
ICE Manual of Construction Law is an invaluable resource for all engineers and other construction professionals engaged in any aspect of procuring, designing, building or operating assets and a comprehensive overview of key topics for students. It raises awareness of the key legal issues on any project and is a valuable tool to help assess when expert advice is required.
