Construction law incorporates sophisticated legal issues with practice areas that reach across the U.S. economy. Construction matters routinely include contract law, labor relations, litigation and dispute resolution, government contracting, administrative law, and ethics. Private law firms, in house legal departments and government agencies continually hire graduates for their construction groups, yet students often have a negligible introduction to the field and are often not prepared for the nuances and scope of the work. In this class, we explore the law of the construction industry with case studies and student discussions, along with site visits and tours of subcontractor facilities.
