Construction law: navigating the legal landscape of a modern construction project
The increasing complexity of construction law provides for a proliferation of contracts and conflict and dispute resolution mechanisms. This complexity has led to a demand for professionals with the skills to analyse, manage, and solve intricate problems that often arise on major projects. The Diploma Centre is offering a Diploma in Construction Law, which begins on 12 October 2019.
The Diploma in Construction Law provides an overview of the specialised discipline that is construction law and practice in Ireland. This diploma will take a practical approach to the complex issues that arise from the multiparty nature of the construction process. Participants will be introduced to the standard forms of construction contracts with particular focus on the Public Works and RIAI Contracts. There will be specialised introductory streams for lawyers and non-lawyers and specific modules on the tendering process and construction dispute resolution. Other prominent areas of study will include:
- The Construction Contracts Act 2013,
- Allocation of risk between the employer and the contractor,
- Collateral warranties and bonds, specialists and sub-contractors, and
- The Building Control (Amendment) Regulations 2014.
Practical training through the use of case studies and workshops will be enhanced by looking at the overall regulation of construction and the role of regulatory authorities, case law, and recent and future developments.
