Thomas Vega-Byrnes : Courses and Seminars
Construction contracts are among the more complex types of legal arrangements, involving multiple actors (governments/regulatory agencies, developers/owners, contractors, subcontractors, equipment suppliers, sureties, insurers and financing parties) and multiple areas of the law (contracts; procurement; torts; insurance; environmental concerns; dispute resolution). The course will provide an introduction to the legal aspects of the construction process, including the relationships between and the risk allocations among the members of the construction team, as well as the resolution of disputes which arise out of the design and construction of heavy industrial and commercial projects. Various models of construction contracts will be reviewed and discussed. Prerequisites: Contracts and Torts.
