About the Book
A unique resource to the legal and technical terms commonly used in construction law and practice
Now, in one place, you'll find concise yet nuanced definitions of the key terms used in the construction industry and in the practice of construction law. The Annotated Construction Law Glossary provides a fundamental understanding of each defined term, making this an invaluable resource whether the reader is a law student or seasoned construction law practitioner, project manager or architect.
The Glossary includes terms central to the practice of construction law as well as other relevant but "non-legal" terms. The comprehensive vision in defining a broad range of terms, from Acceleration to Yellow Book, makes this an invaluable resource for anyone involved in the many aspects a construction project.
The terms in this Glossary are annotated wherever possible to identify the source of the definition and provide necessary integrity so that the defined word or term could be used with authority in legal opinions, court decisions, pleadings, and legal research and literature. Written by over 50 experienced construction lawyers, the authors have incorporated research from the widest range of information sources in their definitions, including legal texts, law review articles, judicial decisions, engineering texts, industry literature, and many other secondary sources. A chart of acronyms and abbreviations is provided for ease of reference when using the book.
