About the Book

This new book, titled Sweet on Construction Law, is based on a series of lectures delivered by Professor Justin Sweet. Sweet, a seasoned writer in the field of Construction Law, departs from the conventional method of legal writing and writes in the conversational manner he uses to captivate audiences in his lectures. He engages you with anecdotes, personal experiences and heretical opinions about the Construction World. Sweet on Construction will clarify the issues and suggest solutions so you can counsel your client at various stages from planning through completion of construction projects. The book offers you pros and cons on using various types of contracts, cost-methods, and systems when building. It also helps you analyze the strength of your client's case and predict outcomes when considering litigation. Sweet on Construction Law is a compilation of stories, ideas, whimsicalities and opinions of a man who has spent most of his life in Construction Law.


"..Hard law need not be dry, desiccated and boring. The Construction World, the backdrop against which this law operates, is hardly boring. It is full of struggles, pain, tension and even laughter. Writing about it should reflect this."
