International Construction Law
The course will review the nature of construction agreements as a whole and the specific features that discern them from other types of commercial contracts. The focus of the course will be on the FIDIC Conditions of Contract which are widely used internationally. The FIDIC contracts will be examined from both a civil law and a common law perspective. Relevant case law will also be quoted.
The course will deal with the legal aspects of all stages of implementation of international construction projects. More particularly, the following topics will be discussed during the course:
≥ Formation of construction contracts;
≥ Governing law;
≥ The role of the Engineer under standard form construction agreements;
≥ Rights and obligations of the Employer;
≥ Rights and obligations of the Contractor, incl. design responsibility;
≥ Breach of contract, esp. delay and defects;
≥ Remedies for breach of construction contracts, incl. termination;
≥ Risk allocation;
≥ Taking over and Completion;
≥ Dispute resolution with an emphasis on dispute adjudication and arbitration.
