James P. Connolly's Construction Law provides readers with an introduction to the main legal issues concerning the most commonly used construction contracts in Scotland.Construction law touches up on wide-ranging fields of law, not just the traditional law of obligations, and is remarkable for the complexity of legal issues that it generates. Written in a highly practical style, this book i s the first in modern times to explore the wealth of Scots law that has developed on key concepts, whilst also having regard to English texts. The book provides a critical analysis of JCT 80 and S cottish building contracts, presented clause by clause and with detailed reference to case law. It also examines the legislative changes affecting construction contracts under the Housing Grants, C onstruction and Regeneration Act 1996, and proposals for reform.
