Product description

Ideal for first year undergraduate students taking law modules on construction, surveying, planning and engineering courses, Galbraith's Building and Land Management Law for Students is an excellent overview of the key legal issues in the construction industry. Clearly written and with wide ranging coverage of key legal principles by construction lecturers and professionals, this textbook highlights the need for students on construction related courses to access information on how the law relates to them, without getting into the dry, heavy detail of the full scale legal texts. This sixth edition has been fully updated and covers the latest JCT Standard Form Building Contract requirements and key EU directives, including Corporate Manslaughter, Employment Law, Tenant Planning Law regulations and Health and Safety acts.
