Description

This microcredential subject provides an introduction to, and overview of, construction law. The course offers a practical perspective of the delivery of projects, including the legal and commercial relationships associated with the construction of major infrastructure projects. The delivery, structure and management of project risk is a focus on part 1 of the course. In particular, management of legal and commercial risk is achieved through effective risk distribution and contract drafting.

In part 1, some of the various areas of law which are involved in the project lifestyle, including the bidding process and liability are examined. This course leads into parts 2 and 3. A key component of the course is its practical application, positioned around case studies. Participants have the opportunity to learn through the practical examination of an assessed case study.
